Mojave Max's Calendar
If you would like to have Mojave Max visit your school, talk about desert tortoises, and talk more about the Mojave Max Emergence contest, teachers may contact our friends at Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association and request a Mojave Max Assembly application. You can email Mojave Max Program Manager Elsa Romero at Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association or call her at 702-258-7097 to get more information about Mojave Max school assemblies.
Rebel Reading Challenge
UNLV Athletics and SuperPawn are once again teaming up with the Clark County School District (CCSD) to bring nearly 7,000 fourth and fifth grade students from 37 schools to the Thomas & Mack Center for the "Rebel Reading Challenge" Kickoff Celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 10:30 a.m.
The second annual event will feature appearances from UNLV coaches and student-athletes as well as local media personalities. Education leaders, including UNLV President Neal Smatresk and CCSD Superintendent Dwight Jones will also attend and participate in the event that launches the "Rebel Reading Challenge," a 30-day competition designed to motivate students to read.
Created by SuperPawn and UNLV Athletics as a community outreach initiative four years ago, the Rebel Reading Challenge has evolved from a 16-school competition to include nearly 7,000 students from 37 schools this year. SuperPawn is underwriting the cost of busing the students to the Thomas & Mack along with other prizes. Spread the Word Nevada, a non-profit dedicated to literacy, is providing each student with a book.
