It's story time for a group of Moffat County High School students.
Dressed as elves and toting Christmas presents, speech students at MCHS will be available until Christmas to come to homes and read Christmas stories.
MCHS speech coach Paula Duzik said speech teams have been providing the service for about ten years.
People simply have to call and set up a time and students will arrive to read Christmas stories.
"The students will read a couple of stories and hand out presents," Duzik said. "The speech kids really get into it and little kids think it's awesome."
The students check out Christmas books from the library that they read at homes they visit.
Duzik encouraged anyone with young children to call.
Between 12 to 15 students involved with the speech program are available anytime between now and Christmas, she said.
It costs $5 for two students to read stories, and $10 for four or more students.
It takes approximately 20 minutes for students to read the stories to children.
Money raised goes toward an annual scholarship that is given to seniors in local speech classes every year.
If people would like to order the services of the Christmas story readers, they can call Duzik at 824-7036 ext. 1317.
