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 approached 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 assemblies kicked off in March with the 2018 Fiesta Days Royalty. The assembly lineup consisted of members of the Rodeo committee 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 reading reached 2.3 million minutes or 39,071 hours. The top two student readers at each elementary 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:
Brockbank Elementary
Canyon Elementary
East Meadows Elementary
Larsen Elementary
Maple Ridge Elementary
Park Elementary
Rees Elementary
Riverview Elementary
Sierra Bonita Elementary
Spanish Oaks Elementary

Good luck reading Nebo students. Let’s reach 3 million minutes this year.

Congratulations to Angie Paynter for answering this week’s “Where are we Wednesday?” challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
