The Third Annual "Steps for Literacy" rally was held on Friday, May 20th, 2005. Students and faculty walked around the school on the "Nature Trail" created by Ms. Wheeler's leadership class in 2002 and then to the Pearl Street Mall. Students carried posters and banners that promoted literacy and reading. These had been placed on route by this year's leadership class.
