Delia Bulldogs, Drumheller Dragons team up for reading challenge
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.
