Serve Daily - - EDUCATION - By Lana Hiskey for Serve Daily SPAN­ISH

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.
