Read Around the Bases
The Onondaga Flames encourage literacy and reading comprehension both in and outside the classroom. We are excited to provide libraries, elementary and middle schools the opportunity to participate in our 2017 “Reading Around the Bases” Reading Program, which is designed to encourage students to discover the joy of reading through incentive-based reading goals designed by their educators.
Students will be rewarded with prizes upon reaching goals for each base. Teachers are encouraged to decorate their classrooms with baseball themes and a scoreboard of achievement for participants, which we will supply.
