In an effort to promote literacy across Long Island, the Long Island Nets representatives, along with their mascot Dale, visited with students at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School. 

As part of their Read to Achieve program, the Nets visit local school districts to help students get excited about reading. The assembly was coordinated by Wade Richardson, a Copiague graduate who was looking to give back to his school community. Richardson serves as the Nets community relations and game presentation coordinator. 

After a few tricks by Dale, the students listened to two books, “The Five Little Monkeys” and “The Brave Fish.” All students were given a bookmark to take home to track their reading. If they read three books in a month, they are given one free ticket to a Long Island Nets game.
