    Any parent who would like to come into our classroom and read a book to the class is welcomed!  The children love stories, especially when they are read by their loved ones.  Just let me know what day you would like to come and I will try my best to accommodate you! Try to keep it  a secret from your child because the surprise is always FUN!
           Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via the school phone 718.556.4400, a note in the folder or my email address tmccarthy@schools.nyc.gov .  I will try my best to get back to you promptly!
