Farmingville, NY – On February 1, Councilman Kevin LaValle and Councilwoman Valerie M.

Councilwoman Cartright read Robert Mucsch’s “Stephanie’s Ponytail” to a group of 3rd and 5th grade students. Following the readings, the students discussed the books and the lessons learned in the stories.

“I was happy to share the joy of reading with the students,” said Councilman LaValle. “It’s so important for children to develop good reading habits at a very early age that will help them in all aspects of their lives.”

Councilwoman Cartright said, “I am always eager to interact with the children of the community; especially when it comes to conveying educational and inspirational messages that can help build their character.”
