Students celebrate literacy with costumes and potatoes

| Kaitie Kiger

Literacy Week was Jan. 24 to Jan. 28 in Santa Rosa County and the entire state of Florida, where students celebrated reading.

Oriole Beach Elementary (OBE) School hosted events like “Reading Under the Stars,” a 2nd grade Vocabulary Parade and more. The school library also encouraged students from all grades to participate in creating a Storybook Spud, a potato decorated to match the theme of a student’s favorite book.
