During the English Language Arts Department’s second annual “Word on the Street” celebration, more than 30 middle school students, administrators and faculty members read original works and favorite literary pieces to peers and parents.
Nicole Waldbauer, Director of ELA, Reading and Libraries, explained that the annual event is an opportunity for the district to celebrate literacy and the spoken and written word. ELA teacher Christine Hult added that the goal is to spread the love of words.
“We study authors and meaning of words, so “Word on the Street” helps the students to appreciate the meaning behind what they read,” Ms. Hult said.
