Ducks Host Reading is the Goal Day Thursday
The Ducks will hold their fifth annual Ducks S.C.O.R.E. Reading is the Goal Day this Thursday, Nov. 10 at Star View Elementary School in Midway City (bordering Westminster and Huntington Beach). Ducks defensemen Francois Beauchemin and Kurtis Foster will join Ducks television host Kent French, mascot Wild Wing and Ducks staff members at a school-wide assembly.

Reading is the Goal Day at Star View Elementary is themed around promoting literacy and education. Ducks staff members will read to and visit with individual classrooms throughout the morning and early afternoon beginning at 11 a.m. At 1:15 p.m., the event will culminate with a school-wide assembly where Beauchemin and Foster will read and conduct a question and answer session with the students. Star View Elementary will also be given an autographed team jersey and a full set of street hockey equipment to commemorate the day.

Reading is the Goal, a division of the Ducks’ S.C.O.R.E. (Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation and Education) program, is a free program to all fourth-grade students in Southern California and is made possible by the Anaheim Ducks Foundation. The mission of the Anaheim Ducks Foundation is to facilitate and support programs that produce positive change for children and families throughout Southern California by providing educational opportunities, broadening access to the sport of hockey and addressing the health and wellness needs of our community. The program rewards students for their time spent reading per day within a 30-day period. Its goals are to convey the importance of reading as the foundation to success and to begin cultivating a love for reading amongst the participants in the program.

The Ducks S.C.O.R.E. program was developed in 2005 with the ultimate goal of promoting healthy living and academic excellence to all students in Southern California. A past recipient (2008) of the statewide Celebrate Literacy Award, the Ducks were recognized by the California Reading Association (CRA) for the high regard given to the Ducks S.C.O.R.E. program by the teachers and students from the schools in Orange, San Diego and Riverside counties where the programs are implemented. In addition to Reading is the Goal, S.C.O.R.E. also provides a street hockey program to over 50 schools, school supplies to 18,000 students and the multiple-subject First Flight Field Trip. This free program has reached nearly 200,000 local children since the 2005-06 hockey season.
