The Morningside Children’s Partnership and Score A Goal In The Classroom helped host the March Madness “Ball for Books” Reading Festival on Saturday, March 5, for the area elementary children. The event was a great success, providing fun and reading initiatives — mentoring and prizes — for the kids, ages 4 – 12!
Sergeant Brent Halford and Ms. Lear Linton, principal at FWISD’s Carroll Peak Elementary, are excited and committed to help change history in a positive way utilizing Score-A-Goal-In-The-Classroom’s Book Patrol Mentoring Initiative!
Score A Goal In The Classroom Executive Director, Ernie Horn, continues to honor all the twenty-six Texas READING BEE champions at their school board meetings or school campus assemblies this spring! Most recently Ernie was delighted to honor once more the 2015 third place winner, Isabel Alcocer, and Seanna Muhitch, our First Place Champ in 2014 — both students at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School in Keller, Texas. We are so proud of these amazing readers who proved their abilities to read at collegiate/high school levels (when only in their fall semester of second grade)!!
