LANCERS COME TO PHENIXRecently at Phenix Elementary School, the student body had the opportunity to meet Elwood, the mascot of the Longwood Lancers.  Along with several members of the basketball team, Elwood came to the school to share the message:  Reading is Important.  The group did a short skit called “Elwood and the Mystery of the Missing Basketball.”  The group then told the students their favorite picture book and shared why they thought reading was important.  To entice reading, the group challenged students to read by promising every student who reaches his/her AR goal during the second nine-week grading period a free ticket to one of their men’s basketball games!   Our students really enjoyed this Longwood University presentation.
