In honor of Read Across America Day, members of the West Hempstead Board of Education and administration, community members and West Hempstead High School Key Club students, gathered at Chestnut Street School on March 2 – the birthday of Dr. Seuss – to read to students.

Among those who read to the students were, Board of Education President Karen Brohm, Vice President Vincent Trocchia and trustee Andrea Shinsato, Superintendent of Schools Patricia Sullivan-Kriss, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Dan Rehman and members of the high school Key Club. They also spoke to the students  about the importance of reading and how it has helped them become successful adults.

Additionally, classes gave a nod to the beloved children’s author by wearing red and white striped hats, cat whiskers and bow ties similar to the Cat in the Hat’s, eating green eggs and ham, and voting on their favorite Dr. Seuss book.
