The IceHogs are Pleased to Announce Another Year of the Rockford IceHogs Reading Program

The IceHogs are committed to improving literacy in the state of Illinois by encouraging students to increase the minutes they spend reading. The Reading Program is designed to encourage students in grades 2-5 to read in and out of the classroom. The program runs from September through March and helps students throughout the school get excited to read, motivated by great prizes!

How the Program Works

  • Each teacher will have access to a Reading Program Toolkit for their students, which they can use to track how many pages are read at home and in the classroom along with other fun reading challenges. Teachers will have access to Certificates of Completion to give to their students with an IceHogs ticket offer that can be printed and distributed to all qualifying students.
  • Teachers will collect their students' reading logs and add up the number of pages read. Each month, teachers will submit their classrooms' total pages read and a top reader of the month online.
