Nominate an elementary school for the Arizona Cardinals reading program
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — The Arizona Cardinals have teamed up with Albertson’s, Safeway and SRP to help Arizona Kids improve their reading skills.
Wide receiver Daniel Arias and some Cardinals cheerleaders met with 50 students at Moya Elementary School, and together, they read a few books, played games and enjoyed milk and cookies. “It means the world just watching them and seeing how excited they were and the questions they asked,” school principal Gina Szabo said.
Teacher Luis Avechuco added that it was especially exciting because Arias speaks Spanish, is Hispanic and “the kids can get to see something like that, and it’s possible for them, too.”
The reading program runs throughout the Cardinals football season. To nominate an elementary school for the team’s next visits, just head to the nomination form here.
