Students take on 6th Annual Surprise Literacy Challenge

Logo Literacy Challenge-final-01

The 6th Annual Surprise Literacy Challenge has begun and approximately 2,500 fourth – sixth grade students from 11 schools are participating in this two-month challenge to experience literacy in fun and interesting ways!

Councilman Skip Hall is hosting the challenge with the support of Surprise Youth Services and in partnership with the Northwest Regional Library and Friends of the Surprise Libraries.

Participating students have been given 29 literacy challenges – like visiting their local public library and engaging with the librarians!

At the end of the challenge, students, teachers, and classrooms will have the opportunity to win new books, Kindles and Spring Training tickets. Teachers are also eligible to win classroom book study sets. The top performing 4th and 5th grade classes will receive medals and ice cream or pizza parties. The top 6th grade class will receive medals and will lead the Pledge of Allegiance at a City Council meeting in February.

Thank you to all of the teachers and students participating in this year’s challenge and to all of the parents who are supporting their children as they take on this literacy challenge!
