Phoebe Hearst students read for 1.8 million minutes
Literacy encouraged by partnership with the River Cats

e-Connections Post Phoebe Hearst

Students at Phoebe Hearst Elementary School participated in a “Home Run Reader” program again this year in partnership with the Sacramento River Cats.

This year the student body was challenged to double the amount of minutes read over last year’s total. The students hit the mark, reading a collective 1.8 million minutes outside of class time.

Participating students get to attend the April 9 River Cats game and students who “hit home runs” in their total minutes get free tickets and lots of River Cats “swag.”
