Coinciding with the opening day of Jefferson's Warriors and Wizards fest Friday, West Elementary School's Literacy Committee organized a fun reading promotion, inviting a group of eighth-graders from Jefferson Middle School to share some of their favorite books with students. Incidentally, all of the students reading to the upper elementary grades chose Harry Potter stories or related books by J. K. Rowling. The teens read aloud in the hall, with the lights dimmed and the hallways lit only by paper luminaries. Then the younger students read alone or in pairs, with the teens visiting and listening.
