Oh, The Places They'll Go! Cavaliers Players Mo Williams and Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Their Wives to Host 30 Sixth Graders for Special Read to Achieve Event
Tuesday, January 26th from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
WHAT: In the midst of a truly XL season, Cavs players Mo Williams and Zydrunas Ilgauskas will take a break from the hardwood and team up with their wives, Kesha Williams and Jennifer Ilgauskas, for a special “Reading Timeout” with a message that mirrors a season where the sky is the limit! The players and their wives will read “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss to a group of 30 students from Patrick Henry Middle School and encourage students to set goals to accomplish their dreams. Much like the team, these sixth graders “...can steer yourself in any direction you choose! YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting… so get on your way!”
When the final page is turned, there will be a brief Q&A before the players and wives go head-to-head with the students in multiple games of Scrabble as they utilize vocabulary and spelling skills. Each student will go home with a Scrabble game of their own and a ticket to an upcoming Cavs game during Read to Achieve week beginning March 1st courtesy of Mo and Z!
The classmates from Patrick Henry Middle School were randomly selected from classrooms throughout northeast Ohio with 100% participation in the Cavs Read to Achieve challenge.
WHEN/ Tuesday, January 26th from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Cleveland Clinic Courts
6101 Brecksville Rd.
Independence, OH 44131
