FOSTER – Coal Valley News editor Fred Pace visited Brookview Elementary School in Foster on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2012, to read to fifth-grade students celebrating “Read to Me Day.”
Pace read the book ‘A Thanksgiving Story’ to Amber He’s fifth-grade class. Pat Pauley was the substitute teacher that day.
Pace said he and the Coal Valley News were honored to be asked by the school to participate in the annual event.
“This is a great way for the community newspaper to be involved in the communities we serve,” Pace said. “It’s also an opportunity for us to emphasize the important role that reading plays in education and careers.”
Pace also complimented the students.
“The students were very respectful, paid attention to the story and asked lots of questions,” he said. “We all had fun. It was a real treat for me to read to them and talk to them about reading and their community newspaper.”
