Fiesta Days Rodeo Reading Challenge

Apr 05, 2019 11:30AM
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, Jimmy Gull, Angie Warner, 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?

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.

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