(Erie, PA) – The Erie SeaWolves, Double-A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, today announce the team’s 2023 Education Initiatives.
C. WOLF’S HEALTHY CHALLENGE PRESENTED BY UPMC HEALTH PLAN
C. Wolf’s Healthy Challenge, in partnership with UPMC Health Plan, is a program for area schools that reinforces healthy student choices including eating right and exercise. C. Wolf will visit area schools to present an assembly focused on making positive, healthy choices. If a student completes three tasks from each list of healthy choices, he/she will receive two tickets to a SeaWolves home game courtesy of UPMC Health Plan.
Each assembly lasts about 30 minutes and time slots are available in February or March. C. Wolf’s Healthy Challenge visits are typically limited to elementary schools within 45 minutes of UPMC Park. Schools located more than 45 minutes away may be considered if multiple nearby schools can be visited on the same day.
C. WOLF’S READING CLUB PRESENTED BY ERIE COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
The SeaWolves have partnered with Erie County Community College to present C. Wolf’s Reading Club. C. Wolf’s Reading Club is a free and fun program open to all elementary and middle schools in the Erie region. The program challenges students to read eight extracurricular books (or hours for students in grades 4-8) from February through the end of March. If students complete the challenge by reading eight books or hours, they receive a free ticket to a SeaWolves game and will be honored at the game. Students can turn in their completed reading chart to their designated teacher or librarian to receive their reward.
C. Wolf and a SeaWolves representative can visit your school to kick off the program and get students excited about reading. Each school can designate a Reading Club Night to have their student readers recognized on the field together as a group before the game. Reading Club kickoff visits are typically limited to schools located within 45 minutes of UPMC Park. Schools located more than 45 minutes away may be considered if multiple nearby schools can be visited on the same day.
MOST IMPROVED STUDENT DAYS
The Most Improved Student program recognizes students that have shown improvement in various areas during the 2022-2023 school year including social, behavioral and academic categories. The SeaWolves will accept nominations from February 1, 2023 until March 31, 2023 at seawolves.com.
