McDonough Attends Chatterton Elementary School Community Reading Celebration

Assemblyman Dave McDonough is joined by Mrs. Cain’s sixth grade class at Chatterton Elementary School.

Assemblyman Dave McDonough (R,C,I-Merrick) today visited with students in Mrs. Cain’s sixth grade class at Chatterton Elementary School as part of the school’s Community Reading Celebration. McDonough read the story of Narcissus from Greek mythology, which the students will soon be learning, discussed cyber-bullying, and talked to students about the implementation of Common Core.

“Chatterton Elementary School’s Community Reading Celebration was an outstanding success,” said McDonough. “The story I read about Narcissus enabled me to discuss with students the importance of public servants representing the best interest of the people. I also spoke with the students about the ongoing implementation of Common Core. While we may not agree with the process, it is important that our students cooperate with their teachers and keep a positive attitude. I want to thank Mrs. Cain for providing me the opportunity to speak to the students. It was a pleasure to visit and converse with students.”
