How do you get your students Wild About Reading? Parker can show you how reading and fun can go hand in hand.

Parker danced and celebrated with the students and faculty at the Easterby Elementary assemblPhoto Jan 18, 8 36 26 AMy recently for their outstanding reading achievements! The students won two laptops for their school’s library through the Grizzlies Community Fund’s Wild About Reading program. Easterby won the laptops by having the highest attendance of all Wild About Reading schools at their assigned game during the 2012 Grizzlies season.

Easterby students partied the morning away with Parker and even got to see their teachers boogie on stage as well!

The Wild About Reading Program is a fantastic way to get students thrilled about reading and the chance to cheer on our very own Fresno Grizzlies! Each student enrolled in the program is challenged to read 10 books over five weeks. If a student reaches the goal, then he or she receives two free tickets to a Grizzlies game.

Over 90,000 Central San Joaquin Valley students are enrolled in the Wild About Reading program in 2013. Also, as part of the program, each student receives a free Farm Grown magazine, which features the short story “Parker Goes To The Farm.”

We are still accepting schools, however, for 2013. If you are interested, please call the Community Fund at (559) 320-2547.

            
"After the assembly there was an explosion of excitement that not just challenged the kids to read above and beyond what they were normally doing but got them more excited to read different books," Easterby Elementary Library Tech Kelly Mitchinson said.
