Once again, Wrightsville Elementary School in the Eastern York School District is the program's opening date, and this year, there is added incentive for the students to read.
Typically, students are asked to read four books outside of their curriculum, attaining incremental prize levels along the way. But Wrightsville Elementary has upped the ante for its students in a big way.
Should the students combine as a school to read 2,000 books outside of class as part of the program, Principal Don Gillett will sleep on the roof of Wrightsville Elementary School beginning the night of the Revs' season opener April 18, and continuing every night until the Revs lose a game.
As part of this year's Boomer's Book Club program, students will keep track of their reading progress on a special bookmark provided by the Revs which they can then use to redeem their prizes.
Students who read one book will receive a free ticket to a Revs home game - April 21, May 8, June 5, or June 19 - courtesy of Brain Balance. Those who read two books receive a free Kids' Meal courtesy of Community Courier to go with their ticket.
A third book wins students limited-edition York Revolution CheerStix courtesy of WellSpan Health in addition to the first two prizes, and students who read four books receive an exclusive Boomer's Book Club drawstring bag courtesy of Heritage Valley Federal Credit Union to go with everything else.
