In 1995, TEPF identified an exciting opportunity to:
- promote literacy,
- strengthen existing reading programs in schools, and
- encourage parents to share in 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, One Transport Group, and DATA Communications Management, TEPF continues to encourage students to discover the joy and benefit of reading.
NEW: Species at Risk collector cards are here in 2020! Students can now use Species at Risk, Canadian Wildlife as well as the Calgary Flames collector cards. Calgary Flames cards are available to schools in Southern Alberta, from Red Deer south only.
Registrations are accepted throughout the year from schools, community organizations, youth serving agencies and home school educators across Alberta. Note: In the fall Calgary Flames trading cards are from the previous year’s roster.
