On Wednesday, December 10, 2014, two Hershey Bears hockey players visited Kunkel Elementary School to launch a “Roaring to Read” reading challenge to Kunkel students. Joel Broda and Philippe Cornet read a book entitled “Hero’s Ho Ho Ho Hockey Dreams.” The storybook was written by Kary Carkner and her sister, Pam Helmer, wife of Hershey Bears Assistant Coach, Bryan Helmer.
To help remind students to participate in “Roaring to Read” each student received a Hershey Bears’ bookmark. When students reach a predetermined number of books set by their teacher, they win a complimentary Hershey Bears ticket! In addition, tickets for accompanying family members are offered at a reduced rate.
So let’s do this, Kunkel students! Start ROARING TO READ as the Bears Defend the Den in 2015!
