Monthly Read Alouds

About the Read Alouds

Each month, Dr. Quinn, Dr. Polychronakos and Mr. Coniglione will read a book to elementary school students based on that month's character pillar. The overall theme, "Choose Kindness, Be Mindful" is incorporated into the books that have been chosen for each read aloud.

Additionally, there are certain days of each month that Comsewogue will participate in to spread awareness of these character pillars. For example, February 7th is Heart Health Day, where everyone is encouraged to wear red.
