Take Us Out to the Ball Game!

Take us out to the ball game!

On Thursday April 26, students from Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center enjoyed a minor league baseball game with their families and friends. To participate, students read 10 books at home and kept a list on a bookmark. When the list was completed, students received two baseball tickets to see the Wilmington Blue Rocks.

Prior to the baseball game, Rocky Bluewinkle made a visit to Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center to get everyone excited!

Rocky’s Reading Challenge offered by the Blue Rocks in partnership with the Delaware State Education Association. This program is designed to show kids that reading can be both fun and rewarding. Nearly 200 area schools signed up for Rocky’s Reading Challenge last season, which means that approximately 30,000 students read their way to Blue Rocks tickets.
