Senator Jack M. Martins visited the Manorhaven School, where he received a warm welcome as a community reader. Senator Martins then read “Alphabet Adventure” by Audrey Wood and Bruce Wood with Susan Cominski’s class.

Senator Martins spoke to the children about the importance of reading and listening to your parents. The students all enjoyed the book about the lower case letters of the alphabet on their way to the first day of school and being held up being the “i” losing its dot!

When Senator Martins is home from Albany, he enjoys visited the schools throughout the Seventh Senate District to meet students. He also currently is running the “How a Bill Becomes a Law” program for fourth and fifth grade students.

“I love visiting with our young students. Having four daughters myself, I know how important reading is. The Port Washington School District does an incredible job of engaging students and providing an environment that fosters learning. I want to thank the class for allowing me to spend the morning with them,” Senator Martins said.
