Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) joined students from his Assembly District in celebrating Read Across America Week by reading Dr. Seuss’ “What Pet Should I Get?”

Hawley read to the students virtually on March 5, sharing the story with elementary school classes in Monroe, Orleans and Genesee counties. The Assemblyman would normally join classes in person but due to Covid-19 restrictions, he joined them virtually through Zoom.

“It was my pleasure to join students this year in celebrating reading by sharing a book from classic American children’s author Dr. Seuss,” Hawley said. “The passion they showed for reading and learning bodes well for our future, and I encourage everyone with children in their lives to join me in sharing the joy of books with our young ones.”

Classes participating included Mrs. Kristen Barber’s first-grade class at Ginther Elementary School, Mr. Mark Skurzewski’s second-grade class at Ronald L. Sodoma Elementary School, Mrs. Stefanie Clark’s first-grade class at Oakfield- Alabama Elementary School, and Mrs. Michelle Patnode’s first-grade class at Wolcott Street School in Le Roy.

Assemblyman Hawley represents the 139th District, which consists of Genesee, most of Orleans and part of western Monroe County.
