Students at West Newton Elementary School recently completed reading fair projects, part of a "Paws for Literacy" competition.
The students created colorful summaries of fiction and nonfiction books they had read. WNES media specialist Keisa Gatewood said students have been working on the projects — which were part of their studies of reading, language arts, science and social studies — for a couple of months.
Gatewood said class winners were chosen at each grade level; a school-wide winner will be named Dec. 12. The overall winner will receive an Atlanta Falcons Package that includes four tickets to a game plus food and parking vouchers.
This was the first year for the Paws for Literacy program.
