Last week, the Wilmington Blue Rocks Mascot, Rocky, along with his “manager” (Mr. Kevin Linton, who serves as the director of community affairs for the Blue Rocks), visited Villa Maria and held an assembly for grades K-3 to promote reading through their program, Rocky’s Reading Challenge. Rocky is challenging students in Pre-K through Eighth Grade to read 10 books from now to March 15. Each student who completes the challenge will earn two tickets to a future Blue Rocks game.
The girls had fun participating in reading activities with Rocky and Mr. Linton and cheering each other on for the challenge!
At the end of the assembly, Rocky posed for a picture with Villa’s three girls who won the Wilmington Blue Rocks Holiday Card Contest earlier this year, Avery S., Riley M. and Georgiana L.
