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