The Chicago Blackhawks Reading Program, presented by Dover, recently revealed the winner of the 2017-2018 school year. After the six-month program, Ms. Hainsfurther’s 4th graders at Prescott Magnet Cluster School prevailed as the winners by reading over 250,000 pages.

The elementary school students’ hard work and dedication to reading earned them pizza for lunch and a visit from Chicago Blackhawks forward John Hayden.

While visiting, Hayden read aloud “The Magical Hockey Stick” to the children. After story time, they were able to ask the hockey player questions including, “What is your favorite number?” and “What is your favorite movie?” To which Hayden replied, “21” and “Harry Potter.”

After a fun-filled afternoon, Chicago Blackhawks treat bags were handed out and the excited group of kids gathered around Hayden for a photo.
