Reading Program


USPBL Reading Program presented by CGC Water and Hungry Howie’s

What is the USPBL Reading Program?

The USPBL and their four mascots, Lancelot, Ribbi, Woolly, and Buzz, are gearing up for another Ribbi visits Naldrett year of the USPBL Reading Program. This is a free, incentive-driven reading program designed to encourage students to read more. The objective for each student is to “hit a home run” by meeting certain goals or requirements during the month of March. Educators will work with students to set the requirements and goals according to their reading level.

Why Participate?

The USPBL Reading Program is a fun way to encourage reading development in students. Every student who “hits a home run” receives a free ticket to attend a 2020 baseball game at Jimmy John’s Field, where they will be honored on the field with all of the students who completed the reading program. In addition, educators receive a free ticket for assisting with the program, and family members of students are offered discounted ticket options.
