From Jan. 29 to Feb. 9, Tackan Elementary School celebrated literacy by participating in the Parents As Reading Partners program. Each day, the school joined together for different activities, such as “Read My Shirt” day, “Be A Character” day, game day and drop everything and read day to make reading fun. 

On Feb. 7, students went to school dressed in their pajamas, ready to listen to stories from special guest readers throughout the day. Smithtown Central School District administrators — including Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Grossane, Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Neil Katz, Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Personnel Services Mona Tobin and elementary, middle and high school principals and assistant principals — shared their love of literacy with Tackan students throughout the day by reading their favorite books.
