Bill Wellington from Radio WOOF entertained Greendale Elementary Students

One man is singing a song on a stage in front of a banner labeled, WOOF radio, to a group of students sitting on the floor.During two daytime performances on October 7, Greendale students had the wonderful opportunity to be whisked away in the world of folklore by Bill Wellington from Staunton, Virginia. He is a storyteller, folk musician, songwriter, and dance caller from Radio WOOF and entertains children of all ages.

His lively folk stories and creative songs energized his audiences. After the program for grades 3-5, Mr. Wellington gave an assignment of writing a poem for the “Roses-Are-Red Writing Project” to the students and collected them at the end of the day. He selected several poems to be read at the evening performance.

 In the evening, Bill Wellington returned to perform for the Title I Family Night at Greendale, which included dinner for the families and another lively concert. He invited many of the students to come on stage and perform some of the songs with him. Laughter and singing filled the forum!
