WKE is excited to participate in the Blowfish Reading Program again this year. Blowie is encouraging our students to read from April 20 – May 15. Students should keep track of what they read with bookmarks provided by the Columbia Blowfish Baseball Team.  All students who participate will get ticket(s) to the Blowfish home game on Thursday, June 1st.

The cumulative rewards are as follows: students read who one book will get 1 ticket; students who read two books will get 2 tickets; students who read 3 books will get 2 tickets and be invited to participate in the pre-game reading recognition parade.  Students who hit a home run (reads 4 books or more) get two tickets, parade invitation and a meal voucher for a hot dog and Coca Cola!!!

Mark your calendar for June 1st, and remember, encourage your student to read, read, read!  Readers are Leaders and Leaders are Readers, and sometimes they get free tickets to a baseball game!

This program is a great way to combine reading and America’s favorite pastime, baseball. Several hundred WKE students participated last year – our goal this year: 100% participation!
