SHS Students Participate in Unite to Read

Unite to Read at Hopkins Elementary

Approximately 53 Somerset High School students representing various different clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities turned out to volunteer their time for the Annual Unite To Read “Share a Story Night” at Hopkins Elementary.  Somerset High School students administered various fun-filled activities for approximately 222 Hopkins’ Elementary students and their families.  Some of the activities for the event included: corn hole, ball toss, puppet making, face painting, henna tattoos, putt putt golf, bowling, football throw, drum circle, duck pond, ice cream, and much more.  The best part was that all of the activities and prizes were free for all of the students who attended!  The Pulaski County Bookmobile was also onsite for students to tour and check out books.


The Somerset High School students who participated were members of the following Somerset High School clubs and sports teams:  FBLA, FCCLA, DECA, National Honor Society, Project Purple, SHS Band, SHS Football, and the SHS Golf Team.


“Unite to Serve” is a statewide project that was designed by members of the Kentucky Career and Technical Student Organizations to give opportunities for students to serve in their communities.  The Unite to Read Campaign focuses on literacy awareness in all grades as well as in the community.  Families who attended the Unite to Read “Share a Story Night” received a free copy of the book “The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble With Chores”.  Somerset High School would like to thank Prairie Farms Dairy for donating the ice cream for the event.
