On Tuesday, October 3rd, students at Wilmer Elementary celebrated “Read for the Record”. Read for the Record is an international campaign to bring children together to read the same book. The main goal of Read for the Record is to promote literacy. The chosen book for 2012 was Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad. Some of the faculty and staff at Wilmer Elementary dramatized the story for Pre-K , Kindergarten, and 1st grade students. Students were given cupcakes (a central part of the story) after the dramatization.
