State Rep. Fred Camillo (R-151) reads to fifth graders at North Mianus School.

It was a “School Full of Readers” last Friday at North Mianus School at its annual reading event.

The schoolwide event, which was held for the 11th year, involved people coming into the school as guest readers to meet with the kids and read them a story. This went on throughout the day and featured not just parents and returning staff members coming back to help the kids read but guests from the community, including Chief of Police James Heavey and fire Chief Peter Siecienski.

Support even crossed party lines, as both state Rep. Fred Camillo (R-151) and Democratic Selectman Drew Marzullo participated on Friday morning. Mr. Camillo visited Megan Gardner’s fifth grade class to read The Great Ball Game, and Mr. Marzullo appeared in Jennifer Green’s fourth grade class to read Bedhead.

The two took questions from the kids after the story about their roles in government and what they do in their positions as well as what lessons they took from the story. Mr. Camillo even asked the kids what laws they’d like to see in Hartford.

“You can’t say no homework,” Mr. Camillo warned, but many of the suggestions did revolve around the idea of either making school illegal or covering the federal government in hot fudge, something Mr. Camillo indicated he might be in favor of.

Mr. Marzullo, a supervisor with Greenwich Emergency Medical Services in addition to his role as a selectman, also discussed the importance of good health and physical fitness.

The program is a longtime tradition at North Mianus School to celebrate the joy of reading and encourage kids to read outside of class.
