Eight students from Underwood Elementary recently completed the WIN for KC Reading and Fitness Challenge, reading 12 books and finishing two monthly fitness logs.
As a reward, the students attended the MIAA Women’s Conference Championship at Municipal Auditorium March 6. The Underwood students watched the University of Central Missouri compete against Northeastern State University.
UCM won the game, and members of the team visited Underwood Elementary the following day to present certificates to students completing the challenge.
The women’s UCM basketball team also visited with fifth-grade classes, answering questions from students.
