As a kickoff to their Parents as Reading Partners initiative, Mills Pond had a special visit from Smithtown High School East students on Jan. 27.
High School East Drama Club students wrote and performed an original piece to coincide with the school’s PARP theme of “Reading Awakens: Rise of the Books.”

The Drama Club students – Emily Broderick, Anthony D’Amore, Tori Delgado, Patrick Jones, Dylan McCormick, Sami Rini, Gaby Sconzo, Dana Tortora, Sarah Weynand and Jacque Moon Yee – dressed up as “Star Wars” characters and performed for Mills Pond Elementary School students. Their performance helped illustrate the excitement of reading and how books can awaken an imagination.
