The Calgary Flames took part in the first of two visits to schools around Calgary to promote literacy through The Educational Partnerships Foundation.
Flames players Sam Bennett, Michael Ferland, and Brett Kulak were at Ranchlands School to answer questions from students.
Reading… Give It A Shot! Is a program that encourages students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 develop a love for reading, improve their reading skills and have some fun.
The students, depending on their age are working towards collecting 24 Calgary Flames trading cards.
The Flames have participated in the program for 22 years and last season over 26,000 students participated in the program.
