Reading Challenge

(Continued)

In addition to the individual challenge, students will represent their school in a special team competition for the third straight year.  Through a donation from the Fisher Cats Foundation, the school with the highest percentage of students who complete the Reading Challenge will win a $3,000 grand prize.  Two additional schools with the next highest percentage of completion will each win $1,000 prizes.

Last year, the Reading Challenge reached 55,000 students in nearly 150 schools, with ten schools generating 100-percent participation.  Since its inception in 2007, more than 150,000 students have learned the importance of reading through the Fisher Cats and CCSNH.

The program is available free-of-charge to all schools in New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts.  To book a presentation by Fungo and the Fisher Cats, or to receive the program information, contact the Fisher Cats Community Relations team at 603-641-2005.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
