Federal Way basketball reads “Pete the Cat” at Adelaide

The Federal Way Eagles boys basketball team took time out to make its annual trip to Adelaide Elementary School to read “Pete the Cat” to Ms. Salisbury’s kindergarten class Wednesday.

After reading, the basketball team accompanied the children to the gym for some basketball.

Eagles basketball coach Jerome Collins brought six members of the basketball team: Mal Pine, Malcolm Cola, Etan Collins, Marcus Austin, Elijah Nnanabu and Mykael Henry.

They were greeted at Ms. Salisbury’s door with high fives by approximately 15 students. Each player and coach Collins and Quinn Gillis took a moment to introduce themselves to the class.

They took turns each reading a page from the book, which was met by rousing cheers of excitement.

“We get a lot of support from the community,” Jerome Collins said. “We like to give back a token of appreciation, gratitude. It’s important for these players to learn the importance of sharing and giving back to their community.”

The team helped the younger students shoot, run around and dunk.

Collins said it is important for children at a young age to be passionate and stay engaged while in school.

“Our guys come here as a reminder to take part in education,” Collins said. “Hopefully these visits help the young kids be inspired to do something great.”
