The South Bay Lakers and Los Angeles Lakers participated in the Reading Across South Bay Team UP event on March 30th at Center St. Elementary School in El Segundo. Staff from the South Bay Lakers and Los Angeles Lakers, along with several Laker Girls, visited different classes that had participated in a month-long Read-A-Thon. Winning classes had the opportunity to have the special guests read in their classrooms. Staff took turns introducing themselves and their roles, reading to the students, and explaining the importance of reading both inside and outside of the classroom.
This event is part of South Bay Lakers’ yearlong programming with Center St. Elementary that includes opportunities to interact with the South Bay Lakers team, educational programming, beautification, and tickets to South Bay Lakers games throughout the season.
