Our class is excited to be part of the March Reading Contest put on by the Saskatchewan Roughriders! Here is a portion of the welcome email we got on March 1st.
Hey Rider Reading Month Teachers!
As of today, Rider Reading Month will be a March fixture in, not only your class, but over 500 classrooms across the province! That means that over 11,000 students will benefit from your commitment to encouraging literacy among children in Saskatchewan! The Saskatchewan Roughriders would like to take this opportunity to graciously thank you for helping to make the inaugural Rider Reading Month a success.
Due to the overwhelming support for the program, we are able to raise the number of classes/schools that will win a player visit to ten. That’s right, 10 randomly chosen classes from across Saskatchewan will be winning a visit from 2 current Saskatchewan Roughrider players for a date to be determined in April. It won’t matter if you’re located in Saskatoon, Swift Current, Strasbourg, or St. Brieux; all classes will have an equal shot at winning player visits.
In order to participate and be entered in the contest- a class has to commit to reading 15 minutes every school day. This is very easy for our class to do because we love to read!
We are going to keep our fingers crossed that we are one of the lucky 10 classrooms that will win a player visit… 🙂
