News and Events
February is coined as “I Love To Read” month in school districts throughout the nation, and students in Fridley’s Tiger Club decided to take on a special reading challenge! During the entire month, Tiger Club students in grades K-6 participated in the “I Love to Read Challenge.” For every 20 minutes of reading completed students were entered into a drawing for various prizes. Students could read anything of their choosing, and staff tracked readers’ progress on the official “Reader Leaderboard,” which also displayed the “Top Reader of the Day.”
“All our students challenged themselves and each other, reading a total of 9,889 minutes!” said Lindsey Crawford, Tiger Club School-Age Manager. “We were so impressed with our young scholars.”
The “top reader” overall was Hayes Elementary 5th grade student Zach Moore, who read over 23 hours. In second place was Hayes 4th grader Dominic Amundsen with 718 minutes, and third place was Hayes 3rd grader Jake Moore with 648 minutes.
Congratulations to all Tiger Club students - keep up the great work!
