On February 23rd, 2015, the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club participated in “I Love to Read Month” with our annual “Reading Takes Flight” initiative.
Thank you to the over 2000 Students and Teachers that applied by submitting their “TOP 5” reasons why their class would like to host a member of the Winnipeg Jets to read to them.
This year 14 schools were selected to have a Winnipeg Jets player(s) come to their classroom and read the official children’s book of the Winnipeg Jets “The Home Team”, sign autographs, distribute bookmarks and answer questions from the students.
Congratulations to the following schools who were selected in 2015.
