Winnipeg Jets hit the classroom for Reading Takes Flight on Monday, Feb. 22

by Staff Writer / Winnipeg Jets



The Winnipeg Jets, in conjunction with I Love to Read Month, are once again proud to present Reading Takes Flight presented by Esdale Printing, a program that positively encourages children to develop an interest in reading. Jets players will be visiting 13 different schools throughout the city on Monday, February 22, 2016 to celebrate the annual February event.

During their school visits, players will be reading the official Winnipeg Jets children’s storybook “The Home Team” to classes of students from grades K to 6. Classes were chosen based on an entrant’s list of Top 5 reasons why a Jets player should read to their class. In addition to the visit, each winning entrant will receive an autographed replica jersey from a visiting player as well as an autographed book for each student and each classroom involved. Students will be receiving Winnipeg Jets’ player bookmarks and can expect to participate in a short autograph session with their visiting player or players.

The media are invited to join Jets’ Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry at Dr. D.W. Penner School on Monday, February 22 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

If you are planning on visiting, please email Keegan Goodrich at kgoodrich@winnipegjets.com to confirm your attendance.
