Mossy Head School media center also hosted a book swap for students to exchange their old books from home for “new” books to read! The Mustang News hosted several guest readers on the morning show to read books to the entire school. Each day, students were reading books and taking Accelerated Reader tests. On Friday, the top 5 readers in each grade level, based on their Accelerated Reader tests, were chosen to come to the media center for a “pop-a-top and read” party, where students read magazines, chatted about their favorite books, and popped-a-top on their favorite soda. Third grade students from Mrs. Ness’, Mrs. Stahl’s, and Mrs. Cole’s classes participated in a presentation by Stacey Betts from the Walton County Health Department. During the presentation, students read a comic book about the importance of diet and exercise. The students of Mossy Head School showed their love for reading all week by celebrating literacy!
