PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. - Nearly 50 Pace University student-athletes and staff members recently visited the Bedford Road School in Pleasantville, N.Y. to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday and National Read Across America Day, by reading to the elementary school students.
Pace student-athletes from a variety of teams partnered with classes to read books and discuss life as student-athletes at Pace. The Bedford Road School students were able to take a break from class and sit down with the athletes, listen to them read and pick their brains about what it's like being serious athletes and college students.
Bedford Road School students also showed off their extensive vocabularies as part of their school-wide Vocabulary Day. Each student and teacher wore a vocabulary poster showing off his or her word, and either the word's definition, or a sentence containing that word.
