The Dallas Stars Stick with Reading program encourages elementary-aged students to foster a love for reading. This incentive-based program will inspire and help motivate students to meet and exceed their reading goals.
Stick with Reading will run from November 1 through November 30, 2015. All participating teachers will receive a Dallas Stars Stick with Reading poster to hang in their classroom to chart students’ progress. For each book a student reads in class or at home, they will receive a star beside their name on the chart. The top reader from each participating class will earn a special Dallas Stars prize and the winning class, that has read the most, will earn special prizes. In addition to these prizes, the winning class will have an opportunity to take a field trip to a Dallas Stars practice to tell the players about the reading goals they accomplished! The Dallas Stars Foundation will also donate tickets to each participating teacher to bring their class to be recognized at a select Dallas Stars game at the American Airlines Center.
The Dallas Stars Foundation’s goal is to work with teachers to encourage students to develop reading habits that they will practice throughout their lifetime and believe this program is a special way to do so. We have re-vamped this program to work seamlessly with teachers’ lesson plans without adding any undue stress or additional work for them. This program will be offered to 50 classroom
Happy reading and Go Stars!
