Award-winning poet, motivational speaker, and children’s book author Darren Sardelli visited the students at Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center in Bellmore. During his visit, which was sponsored by the school’s Parents as Reading Partners Program, Mr. Sardelli brought poetry to life by performing several of his funny poems for the kindergarten, first, and second-grade students. He also spoke about the importance of writing down ideas and the wonderful things that can be created with those ideas. During his visit, the students had the opportunity to create original and humorous poems with the assistance of Mr. Sardelli.
