Legislator Arnold Drucker is this Month’s P.A.R.P Reader at Old Bethpage Elementary School
(OLD BETHPAGE, N.Y. - VIA ZOOM) – Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) met some of his district’s youngest residents during a recent zoom meeting to Mr. Sidito and Mr. Givargidze’s fourth grade classes.
Each year, schools all across Nassau County host Pick-A-Reading-Partner (PARP), a New York State PTA educational initiative in which reading partners, such as parents, relatives and elected officials are invited as special guests to read to students. Legislator Drucker read “Flight For Freedom: The Wetzel Family’s Daring Escape from East Germany,” by Kristen Fulton - an inspiring true story about one family's escape from behind the Berlin Wall.
“My lifelong love for reading was cultivated when I was a young boy, and I am committed to sharing my passion for literature and storytelling with the next generation,” Legislator Drucker said. “It’s always a pleasure to be a part of Old Bethpage Elementary School’s Pick-A-Reading-Partner program, and I thank Mr. Sidito and Mr. Givargidze’s class for inviting me.”
