Sanford Mainers’ mascots visit Margaret Chase Smith Elementary School to kick off reading challenge

Boomer, Bruce the Moose, and Chase made a special appearance at Margaret Chase Smith School last Friday for its assembly. They were excited to introduce a new baseball-themed reading challenge to encourage a love for reading among MCS students. Just as baseball requires practice and dedication, so does reading. By participating in this challenge, children will have fun and develop essential literacy skills. Students track the number of minutes they have read in 15-minute increments. After they have completed four hours of reading, they will receive two free tickets to a Sanford Mainers game. Each student will receive a permission slip to sign-up and must return it by April 1 to receive their reading log.
