  • WMS Seventh Graders Celebrate Read Aloud to a Child Week

    Special readers helped English teacher Linda Hume’s seventh-grade students at Warrenton Middle School celebrate Read Aloud to a Child Week Oct. 22-28. Readers included WMS assistant principal Karyn Spahr, art teacher Marissa Pappas, school guidance counselor Jennifer Kuehn, school resource officer Sal Torelli, librarian Kathy Howard, instructional technology resource teacher Tina Ference and school board chairman Brian Gorg. “Students loved having time to listen to different adults read a variety of books,” said Hume. “There is a misconception that once students enter middle school, they are too old to be read to, but that’s just not true. Not only do the students enjoy hearing stories read, it’s also a great opportunity to model reading.”
