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 more.

The Fiesta Days Rodeo Committee kicked off the assemblies with a lineup consisting of Nick Hanks, Seth Perrins, Dale Robinson, Angie Warner, Jimmy Gull, and Kevin Parker along with the Fiesta Days Rodeo Queen, Alli Johansen, and Second Attendant, Savannah Ogden. The students were asked to log their reading for the month of April. The students will turn in their reading minutes to their teacher and each grade will have a winner. During the assembly, the students also learned about rodeo events including team roping, barrel racing, and bull riding to name a few. Did you know that the average bull weighs 2,400 pounds?

Last year the students’ combined reading total reached 2 million minutes or 33,970 hours. Two student readers at each elementary school will be announced Friday, July 19, 2019, 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 Ash Nielsen for answering this week’s “Where are we Wednesday?” challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
