• It pays to read with MEac...literally!

     

    Students at W. H. Taylor Elementary started their morning off with a bang, as part of the 9th Annual Read with MEac Celebration, Tuesday, March 7, 2017.  The elementary school, earned first-place honors in the citywide reading contest that ran from September 20, 2016 - February 6, 2017.  The contest was organized by the Mid-Atlantic Eastern Athletic Conference's (MEAC) Senior Woman Administrators (SWA); each school's reading progress was monitored by the Renaissance Star Reading program.  The students' hard work was rewarded with a celebratory pep rally and a check was presented to the school for $2000.
