Congratulations to Caneyville Elementary for winning the 2012 Axle Bear’s Book Buddies Reading Challenge, sponsored by the Bowling Green Hot Rods. Caneyville had the highest percentage of students complete the Challenge, an annual scholastic program that rewards students that meet certain reading goals with two tickets to a Hot Rods game. Caneyville students and their families attended the game last spring and the school’s choir also dazzled the crowd with their performance of the National Anthem.
In addition to bragging rights and better reading skills, the school also came away with the $1,500 grand prize, which was presented to counselor Brenda Royalty by Hot Rods mascot, Roscoe, during a before-school assembly.
Congratulations to Caneyville and it’s students for taking on and winning this challenge!
