Reading…Give it a Shot
Reading Give It A Shot is a reading program in partnership with the Calgary Flames and other corporate supporters. Students from grade 1 to grade 5 earn Canadian Wildlife cards and/or hockey cards for reading, giving them even more incentive to develop their skills. Every year two lucky schools get a visit from Calgary Flames players and Flames mascot Harvey the Hound.
Environmental Actions provides funding for student-led environmental initiatives that benefit their school and community. Teachers and students can apply for a grant to support a project students would like to do in their in their school, like planting vegetable gardens, vermi-composting and projects that reduce energy usage such as installing solar panels.
Trades and Climate Change Education is our newest program. School districts partner with trade union facilities to provide hands-on learning experiences in various skilled trades. The programs are held at off-campus locations in first-class facilities. They are taught by journeymen instructors in the construction trades and can lead to ongoing training and exciting careers in trades.
