Vancouver PAL hosts literacy event - 01/16/18

Vancouver, Wash. -- The Vancouver Police Activities League hosts literacy events each month during the school year in elementary schools in both the Vancouver and Evergreen School Districts throughout the county. These events provide free books to kids, encourage reading, and create positive connections between kids and cops. Vancouver PAL will host the next literacy event:

Date: Thursday, January 18, 2018
Time: 10:45 a.m.
Location: Fruit Valley Elementary (3410 NW Fruit Valley Rd.)

This school year, Vancouver PAL literacy events will focus on youth in the second and third grades. Each literacy event includes a safety presentation from the Vancouver Police Department, or Clark County Sheriff's Office, (depending on the location of the school), time for kids to pick out a free book, reading time with police officers, and a tour of specialty police vehicles. These literacy events are fun for both the officers and the kids. Literacy is one of the key educational programs the Vancouver Police Activities League focuses on.

Members of the media are always invited to attend any PAL events to see first-hand the positive impact that programs such as PAL can have on a community. Members of the media who want to attend a literacy event should check in at the school office to receive a visitor badge. Be prepared for great visuals and high energy!
