PAL of SW Washington to host literacy event

Event will take place at Harney Elementary School this month

VANCOUVER — The Police Activities League (PAL) of SW Washington 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.  PAL will host the next literacy event:

      Date:          Tue., April 16, 2019

      Time:          1 p.m.

      Location:      Harney Elementary (3212 E Evergreen Blvd.)

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 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!
