Reading…Give It a Shot!
Lighting the lamp. Lighting imagination
In 1995, TEPF identified an exciting opportunity to:
- promote literacy,
- strengthen existing reading programs in schools, and
- encourage parents to share I their children’s reading.
The Reading…Give it a Shot! program was created working with founding partner, the Calgary Flames.
Reading is viewed as the best way for children to develop skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. By encouraging reading, this program opens the minds of elementary school students to a world of knowledge and imagination. Reading is a gift, and Reading…Give it a Shot! helps students bring this gift to life.
Thanks to the Calgary Flames, the Calgary Flames Foundation, ConocoPhillips Canada, Checker Transportation Group, and DATA Communications Management, TEPF continues to encourage students to discover the joy and benefit of reading.
