Reading classes spread holiday cheer

LAKE WALES – Two reading classes from Lake Wales High shared some holiday cheer last Friday (Dec. 14) with residents of local nursing homes.

The boys’ reading class visited Savannah Court to sing Christmas carols and donate student-made wreaths. On the same day, the girls made a similar visit to Grace Healthcare, to sing and deliver wreaths.
