Find out what local business is turning 10; and what new breakfast joint is coming to Surprise!
Thirteen schools and 124 classrooms from across Surprise accepted a five-month reading challenge back in October, and now, the results of the 3nd Annual Surprise Literacy Challenge are in!
The Challenge, created by Councilmembers John Williams and Skip Hall, asked students in 4th-6th grade to track the number of hours they read outside the classroom. Teachers then reported those numbers back to the city.
Here are the winners in each grade:
Ms. Gore’s class – Arizona Charter Academy
Ms. Frazier’s class – West Point Elementary
Ms. Daniel’s class – Paradise Education Center
The top 4th and 5th grade classroom will be treated to a pizza party. They will also receive a trophy for their room and individual medals for each student.
The winning 6th grade class will accepted their accolades on the field at the March 25 Spring Training game at Surprise Stadium.
The city congratulates these winning readers!
