READING WITH NORM
The Charlotte 49ers are excited to continue their program called "Reading with Norm". This incentive-based reading program is designed to encourage kids to read throughout the year.
Local schools grades K-5th.
Each student needs to read a minimum of 10 age appropriate books each quarter. The student must record these books on the bookmark provided to them by the Charlotte 49ers. At the conclusion of each quarter, the bookmark should be mailed to the Charlotte 49ers. All students who successfully complete the challenge each quarter will receive two complimentary tickets to a Charlotte 49ers athletics event and will also have their name listed on the website.
For the 2014-2015 school year there will be four quarters. A separate bookmark will be provided for each quarter and will need to be mailed to us at the conclusion of each quarter.
1st Quarter: August 25 - October 27
2nd Quarter: October 27- January 20
3rd Quarter: January 21 - March 31
