In conjunction with Read Across America and the birthday of Dr. Seuss, Countrywood invited distinguished guests to participate in their first annual Community Read-in on Friday, February 28, 2014.  This was a special day to celebrate our love of reading.  South Huntington staff including Officer Drew, Dr. Centamore, Mr. Ciccarelli, Mr. D’Elia, and Ms. Kerrigan joined Countrywood including teachers, paraprofessionals, our custodian, and a cafeteria staff member in this reading event.  In addition, South Huntington librarian Ms. Mildred Bernstein, Fire Chief Fred Steenson, Jr., Board of Education member Ms. Lisa Brieff, and other community members shared their loved of reading with the students. 

As adults, we know that reading is one of the most significant learning experiences for children.  This program was enjoyable for students and teachers, as well as rewarding and memorable for guest readers. Community Read-In is our opportunity to make a difference and show our children that reading is FUNdamental!!!!
