Spanish Fork City teams up with local schools for Rodeo Reading Challenge
FORK — Nebo School District is excited to partner with the Fiesta Days Rodeo team to challenge our elementary students in the Spanish Fork area to read. The Spanish Fork Rodeo Committee ap- proached Nebo School District to team up for a Rodeo Reading Challenge with all the Spanish Fork elementary schools to organize a win/win situation.
The Rodeo Reading Challenge assem- blies kicked off in March with the 2018 Fiesta Days Royalty. The assembly lineup consisted of members of the Rodeo com- mittee Dale Robinson and Nick Hanks as well as a surprise guest, Landon Hanks, a third grader, that taught students how to rope.
The reading challenge will go through the month of April.
Last year the students’ combined read- ing reached 2.3 million minutes or 39,071 hours.
The top two student readers at each ele- mentary school will be announced Friday, July 20, 2018, the first night at the Fiesta Days Rodeo in Spanish Fork.
These winning students will receive tickets to the Fiesta Days Rodeo, Justin boots, Wrangler Jeans, and a Resistol cowboy hat as well as be involved in the opening ceremonies on the opening night of the Fiesta Days Rodeo.
Schools accepting the Rodeo Reading Challenge include:
Brock bank Elementary
East Meadows Elementary
Lars en Elementary
Maple Ridge Elementary
Re es Elementary
River view Elementary
Sierra Bonita Elementary
Spanish Oaks Elementary
Good luck reading Nebo students. Let’s reach 3 million minutes this year.
