Culminating Meadowbrook Elementary School’s two-week Pick a Reading Partner program, local officials and community leaders joined East Meadow School District professionals on March 24 to read to kindergarten through fifth-grade classes. 

Following the school’s PARP theme of “Step Right Up, Read a Book,” student representatives from each class posed with the guest readers for a picture alongside giant circus curtains and decorative props such as balloons, popcorn and top hats before escorting them to their classroom. 

Among those who read grade level-appropriate books to the students were Hempstead Town Clerk Nasrin Ahmad, Assemblyman Tom McKevitt, Nassau County Legislator Norma Gonzalves, PTA Council President Donna LaScala, district administrators and other influential community members. 

After the guests had finished reading, the students asked them about their professional careers and how reading has helped them to succeed.
