The Winnipeg Jets, in conjunction with I Love to Read Month, are once again proud to present Reading Takes Flight, a program to positively encourage children to develop an interest in reading. Jets players will be visiting 14 different schools throughout the city on Monday, February 23, 2015 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 8. 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. There are also a number of prizes to be handed out, including Winnipeg Jets’ player bookmarks, along with a short autograph session for the participating students.
