Warsaw Christian School Students K-6
For the parent or guardian of a student participating in the Fort Wayne TinCaps Reading program:
Warsaw Christian School is going to participate in the TinCaps Reading Incentive Program during the 3rd grading period. The students will have the opportunity to improve his or her reading skills while earning a surprise gift and a ticket to a TinCaps baseball game. I want to fill you in on a few details for the program. The kick-off day is Monday, January 12th. The TinCaps Reading Program is divided into four segments representing a “base” on the baseball field. When a student completes a segment they will advance to the next base. The goal is to “hit a home run.” Please see the game plan guidelines below:
Grades K-1 should do the following for each base:
First Base - (Jan. 12-Jan. 23) - Sprint to 1st base – Listen to 5 books and send in the verification form
Second Base – (Jan. 26-Feb. 6) - Dash to 2nd – Read 2 books to an adult and send in the verification form
Third Base - (Feb. 9-Feb. 20) - Hustle to 3rd–Read 5 books to an adult and send in the verification form
Home Plate – (Feb. 23-Mar. 13) – Slide into home - Read 1 book about a sport and write 1-2 sentences about the sport (staple the paper with the sentences to the verification form)
Grades 2-6 should do the following for each base:
Complete their regular AR points for the grading period. Teachers will keep track of their progress using a chart in the classroom. No verification slips are needed.
Students will receive a ticket order form when (if) they have completed the requirements for all the bases and have reached home plate. DO NOT photocopy the Ticket Order forms as copies will NOT be accepted. ONE form per student. You may order more tickets for the rest of your family on the order form (the free ticket is ONLY for the student who participates). In order for the students to be seated together with Warsaw Christian School, all ticket order forms must be brought back to your child’s teacher or the school office before, but no later than, Monday March 23th, no exceptions (sorry). After the forms are received the actual tickets from the TinCaps office will be distributed approximately a week before the game date.
So, upon completion (Home Run!!) students will receive a free ticket to the TinCaps baseball game which is scheduled for Friday, May 8th at 7:05 p.m. We will sit together and the students will receive a free hot dog, chips, soft drink and a surprise gift.
