Former Ducks player Jeff Friesen, TV analyst John Ahlers, Wild Wing, Power Players and members of the Ducks staff all took part in the Ducks S.C.O.R.E. Reading is the Goal Day on Tuesday at Mattie Lou Maxwell Elementary School in Anaheim. Each Ducks representative took part with the purpose of encouraging and inspiring the students to achieve their reading goals.

In addition to the Reading is the Goal Day, the efforts of Monday's Power PLAY! school beautification project were unveiled to the students. The campus makeover included planted trees, raised gardens, murals on the buildings and handball courts and an outdoor rink that students played on throughout the afternoon.

Reading is the Goal Day is themed around promoting literacy and education. Ducks staff members visited with individual classrooms throughout the morning and early afternoon and read to them from various books. That was followed by street hockey for the students, organized by the Ducks Street Team, on the school’s playground. The event culminated with an assembly in which Ahlers read to the students from a hockey-themed book called Brady Brady and the Great Rink.

The Ducks also donated an an autographed team jersey and a full set of street hockey equipment to the school, which was presented by Wild Wing and the Power Players.

Reading is the Goal, a division of the Ducks’ award-winning 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 close to 20,000 students and the multiple-subject First Flight Field Trip.
