GRAND CHUTE, WI - The school year is in full swing and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers invite area schools to get involved in Fang's Reading Club for 2012. The club is an incentive-based rewards program that encourages reading development in children from grades K-5. Teachers and reading coordinators may start registering their classes and schools now through November 18.

Last year over 38,000 students from 160 schools and libraries participated in the popular program. Personnel at the participating schools have the flexibility to design the program to meet the needs of their students. Students are provided with incentive prizes from the Timber Rattlers by Learning Rx and Goodwill. Students who meet all of their goals for the program are rewarded with a FREE ticket to a Timber Rattlers game in 2012.

Please head to Fang's Reading Club page at the Timber Rattlers website for full details of the program.
