As part of a special celebration commemorating the birth of Dr. Seuss, students across Grundy Avenue Elementary School listened to stories read by prominent members of the school and community as part of a Readers as Leaders event.

During the collaborative event, multiple guest readers shared stories with students promoting literacy. Those in attendance included, but were not limited to, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham, Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, New York State Sen. Phil Boyle and Suffolk County Police Officer Keith Murphy. 

After each guest concluded their chosen story students asked a series of questions related to their specific careers, gaining interesting insight from the distinguished visitors.
