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 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: We are now offering, in partnership with Canadian Geographic, Canadian Wildlife trading cards as well as the Calgary Flames trading cards. Calgary Flames trading 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.
