March 13, 2023

The Delmarva Shorebirds minor league baseball mascot, Sherman, visited Lewes Elementary Feb. 24 to celebrate the conclusion of the school Home Reading Challenge. 

Reading Specialist Ellen Uszenski said the school incorporated the Shorebirds’ Hit the Books program with its own initiative to increase reader engagement with a home reading challenge. 

“Students were challenged to read at home, five nights a week for 30 minutes each night,” she said. “If accomplished, they had a reading log with a baseball to color in.”

Sherman, with Delmarva Shorebirds representative Samantha Lehman, entertained students with assemblies for all grade levels in which Lehman read a baseball story enacted by Sherman.
