More than two dozen Springfield students were honored Monday by Mayor Domenic Sarno for their achievements in reading.
Sarno and members from the Springfield Armor attended an assembly Monday morning at the Deberry School.
The students took part in the Armor's "read to achieve program".
Students who participated had to complete four reading logs within four weeks.
"It's a very big accomplishment because part of it is responsibility and the other part of it is reading, so as we all know, the more we read the better we get at reading and new vocabulary," said Deberry Principal Stefania Raschilla.
The students all got a free ticket to a Springfield Armor game.
