As thoughts turn from summer vacations to back-to-school preparations, Senator Suzi Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) reminded parents that reading aloud to their young kids is one of the best ways to prepare them for the challenges of a new school year. Senator Oppenheimer, who chairs the Senate Education Committee, recently participated in an early literacy awareness event at the Open Door Family Medical Center in Ossining.
Reading the popular children’s book, “Five Little Monkeys” by Eileen Christelow, the Senator captivated her young audience, who joined in with the refrain “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!” The children and their parents were at the Open Door Family Medical Center for pediatric check-ups.
Celebrate the Holidays by Helping Others Stay Warm this Winter
As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, Senator Oppenheimer (D-Mamaroneck) is urging families to open their hearts, closets, and attics to find donations that can help keep the homeless and needy warm and sheltered this winter.
