Sports Day held at Penn Kidder Elementary
VICTOR IZZO/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees baseball team's mascot "Champ" sports blue fur, two large yellow ears, and a huge red nose.
Last Friday, the final day of BAMMM week (Books are Magical, Magnificent, and Marvelous) was "Sports Day" at Penn Kidder Elementary School and and everyone was allowed to dress in their favorite team's shirt or jersey.
As part of the activities on that day, school students and staff were treated to visits by three different sports mascots at assemblies in the school's gym.
Absolutely thrilling the students at Penn Kidder Elementary were the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees baseball team's mascot "Champ", the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins' mascot "Tux", and JTAHS' own mascot, "Herc".
The BAMMM week activities, which stress the importance of reading, were coordinated by Randy Engle and Kathy Andreas.
