The Delia School stu­dents and staff along with the Drumheller Dragons are bring­ing hockey and read­ing to­gether to pro­mote lit­er­acy. Dur­ing the school’s se­cond se­mes­ter break­fast, school li­brar­ian, Leah Hunter, is­sued a chal­lenge to Delia school stu­dents, staff, and Drumheller Dragons play­ers. In an ef­fort to pro­mote lit­er­acy and read­ing for fun Mrs. Hunter and Delia School staff hope stu­dents will get in­volved in the read­ing chal­lenge for the month of Fe­bru­ary. Drumheller Dragon play­ers have vol­un­teered to be guest lead­ers for our school clan groups pro­vid­ing en­cour­age­ment and men­tor­ship for stu­dents. Delia School clans will go head to head in the chal­lenge to see who can achieve the most points ac­cu­mu­lated by Fe­bru­ary 29. Stu­dents will ac­quire points through read­ing min­utes done and the Dragons play­ers as guest lead­ers for each clan will con­trib­ute to clan points through their ef­forts on the ice. The Dragon lead­ers shared with stu­dents the value of be­ing on a team and of­fered words of en­cour­age­ment.

Each week the group with the most points will re­ceive a pass to a pizza party lun­cheon. The win­ning clan group with the most ac­cu­mu­lated points will be at­tend­ing a Drumheller Dragons game and their win­ning Dragon leader will present a tro­phy to their clan prior to the game start.

Mrs. Hunter also prom­ises a spe­cial treat. The goals of the pro­gram are to in­crease stu­dent read­ing time, con­tribut­ing to their aca­demic suc­cess, model good read­ing habits and life­long learn­ing, and the con­nec­tion be­tween the Drumheller Dragons hockey team and our school through men­tor­ship and vol­un­teerism.

Delia school and the Drumheller Dragons are team­ing up to pro­mote lit­er­acy.
