Read Across American was celebrated by inviting five classes into the library to hear a special guest reader. The Westchester County Executive, Rob Astorino, came into the library for an inspirational read aloud. Mr. Astorino emphasized the importance of working hard in school and reading  in the library.He indicated his successes in life are due to being diligent, reading and listening well.

When asked what exactly it is he does, he replied he helps take care of the county and Mr. Astorino told the crowd the most enjoyable part of his job was being able to interact with the public and spend time with kids.

After the read aloud and a bunch of questions, Mr. Astorino took time to speak with individuals that approached him and take pictures with classes.

There is something special and truly valuable to the learning community when community heroes take the time to give back. This was a happy. inspirational and fun day at Highview School.
