Yesterday in Staten Island, campers at Children’s Aid’s Goodhue Center took a break from swimming, sports, and outdoor activities to partake in the second annual Reading Leaders Day. Elected and appointed officials, government representatives, and the principal of I.S. 61 stopped by Goodhue to lead different reading groups throughout the campus, engaging our youth in literacy and helping them avoid summer learning loss.

Thank you to all of our friends in government and education who volunteered their time to make this day possible: U.S. Congressman Michael Grimm; New York State Senator Diane Savino; Chris Bauer and Teresa Cirelli from Assemblyman Titone’s office; Patricia Salas from Assemblymember’s Malliotakis’ Office; Bill Matarazzo from Senator Lanza’s office; Paul Tarr from the District Attorney’s office; I.S. 61 Principal Susan Tronolone; and S.I. Public Administrator Gary Gotlin.
