Fourteen schools in the tri-country area vowed to read as many books as possible outside of the classroom.
After all, it was Scrappy’s orders.
The program, which kicked off in January, promoted reading to kids from as little as five years old to Jr. High classes. Those classes that read the most books were rewarded with a pizza party.
Over the past two weeks, members of the Scrappers front office, and of course Scrappy, made their rounds throughout the area delievring Pizza hut pizza and congratulating the classes on a job well done. Along with the pizza prize, students have the opportunity to attend a Scrappers game for free on either June 20, June 27 or July 13. Participants will also be able to go on the field with Scrappy and be honored, prior to the first pitch.
