Woodstock Elementary School took its celebration of Read for the Record to the streets by participating in GROW's Park(ing) Day 2013 on Sept. 20.
Woodstock Elementary first-grade teacher Debby Pinion organized The Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy of Cherokee County’s station at the event, which featured guest readers, children’s activities and music by her husband Martin.
The foundation's farm theme was inspired by this year’s Read for the Record book, "Otis" by Loren Long. Read for the Record is set for Oct. 3, and is designed for people to come together to celebrate literacy and early childhood education.
"We thank her for her dedication to the profession and commitment to the cause," Woodstock Elementary School Principal Kim Montalbano said of her teacher. "We appreciate everyone who was able to stop by and visit."
