Students at Ann MacArthur Primary School got a special treat when Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Anna F. Hunderfund came to read them a story as the kick-off event for PARP (Parents as Reading Partners) week. 

The Parents as Reading Partners week is an annual event sponsored by the Locust Valley Elementary Parents Council and coordinated by parents Hayley Byron and Kim Rowe.  This year’s theme was “Cuddle Up With a Good Book.”

Dressed as the book’s main character, the peddler, Dr. Hunderfund read the classic tale “Caps for Sale.”   Locust Valley Elementary School Principal Dr. Sophia Gary and Assistant Principal Michele Salerno each read a story as well. They, along with the students, were dressed in their pajamas for the day – teddy bears in hand!
