“During this special week, students, teachers, administrators, parents and volunteers all celebrate the tremendous success our students have accomplished,” remarked Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Assessment and Accountability Kerry Padrick. This year’s theme, “Reading Accelerates Success,” encourages students in St. Lucie County Public Schools to connect literacy with careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

In Martin County (south of St. Lucie County), Dr. David L. Anderson Middle School has been announced by the Florida Department of Education (“Public Service Announcement”) contest as one of the nine finalists for its 2014 literacy week celebration. View videos at:

As stated at “Just Read Florida” website: Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida is an annual event during which students, teachers, administrators, parents and volunteers all celebrate the tremendous success Florida's students have accomplished over the past decade. We also take the opportunity during the week to encourage our students to keep reading and improving their skills. We know that if Florida's students are going to shoot for the moon and achieve great success they must have the literacy skills that 21st century careers demand. Florida's educators and students will continue to make strides toward increasing student achievement in literacy, and students will be challenged to read every day because "Reading Accelerates Success".
