Love of Lit at Connetquot Book Fair


At Connetquot’s fall Scholastic book fair, held on Oct. 22 and 23, every student had an opportunity to peruse the wide variety of books that were on display in Connetquot’s community room, thanks to dedicated organizational efforts by the school’s PTA. Parents also were also invited to join the excited readers and assist them in selecting a “just right” book for their children.

“It was wonderful to see how enthusiastic everyone was about promoting the importance of reading each and every night,” said Principal Deborah Smith. “Fostering the love of literature is one of the main goals of the East Islip School District, and it was so rewarding to have such great participation from the community of readers at Connetquot.”
