Reading is essential in a well-rounded education and the Minnesota Wild will recognize one school for its improvement in the skill today. The Wild will honor the Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet School with the Traveling Stanley Reading Improvement Award.
Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet School is being awarded the Traveling Stanley Reading Improvement Award based on its 2011-12 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) reading scores. The school had the highest percentage (11 percent) of improved reading scores from the previous year among Saint Paul Public Schools. The Award, a six-foot, Wild-themed dinosaur, will be displayed at the school all year long.
Former Wild great Wes Walz will be joined by Nordy to present the award to the school today. Catherine Rich, Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet School Principal and Julie Schultz Brown, Director of Communications, Marketing and Development, Saint Paul Public Schools will be on hand to accept the honor.
The Traveling Stanley Reading Improvement Award spent the 2011-12 school year at Saint Paul Music Academy. The Wild will continue to honor the St. Paul elementary school with the most improved reading scores each year with the Traveling Stanley Reading Improvement Award.
