Louisa County High School’s volleyball team traded in sets and spikes for books and chairs on Tuesday, Oct. 24.
The team spent the afternoon reading stories to students at Moss-Nuckols Elementary School as part of “Read Aloud to a Child Week.” The occasion is celebrated once each year, and encourages young adults and parents to read out loud to children.
Since reading aloud is already a fundamental and integral part of an LCPS education, school officials put the focus on having high school and staff members volunteer to read to elementary age students. This allows students to get a fresh, new experience of hearing a story read from someone outside of their normal classroom setting.
For the Lady Lions, it was an opportunity they didn’t want to pass over, regardless of the fact they had an on-court matchup later that same day.
