CIBC Read to Succeed is designed to emphasize the importance of reading, receiving a good education and lifelong learning. Players from the Regina Pats wish to set an example for middle grade students and promote the importance of literacy to students through classroom visits. Players spend time reading to students, answering questions and providing bookmarks for students as a reminder of the important visit.
CIBC Read to Succeed will also recognize students who achieve their specific classroom goals set by themselves and teachers – such as reading a particular book and completing an assignment, by presenting them with complimentary ticket to an upcoming game. The objective behind this program is to reward students that work hard and show initiative. It gives every student the opportunity to earn a free ticket even if they don’t have straight A’s and B’s.
Literacy is an area of great importance to the Pats Organization and its players. Together we make a commitment each and every year to bring awareness to Literacy through the CIBC Read to Succeed Program.
