Centre Avenue’s Reading Action Committee was excited to host Community Readers Week from April 3-7.

Throughout the week, each grade was visited by an important member of the East Rockaway community, who shared their love for reading with a different picture book. Some of our community members included Board of Education trustee Mr. Neil Schloth, East Rockaway Education Foundation President Dr. Richard Meagher, East Rockaway Public Librarians Mrs. Heather Massa, Mrs. Donna Miller and Athletic Director Dom Vulpis. The visitors took the opportunity to discuss their role in the community and the importance of reading in their lives. Some even shared local events that students can participate in at the nearby library. It was a wonderful week for the students and faculty and we thank all visitors for taking the time out of their day to spend time in our schools.
