Jets Reading Takes Flight Visits

February 5, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Manitoba Moose News Release

Winnipeg, MB - The Winnipeg Jets, in conjunction with 'I Love to Read Month', are once again proud to present Reading Takes Flight presented by Esdale Printing, a program that positively encourages children to develop an interest in reading. Jets players will be visiting 12 different schools throughout the city on Monday, February 5, 2018.

During their school visits, players will be reading the official Winnipeg Jets children's storybook "Whiteout: A Winnipeg Jets Story" to classes of students from grades K to 6. Classes were chosen based on an entrant's list of top five reasons why a Jets player should read to their class. In addition to the visit, each winning entrant will receive an autographed replica jersey from a visiting player as well as an autographed book for each student and each classroom involved. Students will be receiving Winnipeg Jets' player bookmarks and can expect to participate in a short autograph session with their visiting player or players.

The media are invited to join Jets' Tyler Myers, Adam Lowry, and Bryan Little at Whyte Ridge Elementary School at 400 Scurfield Blvd on Monday, February 5 from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm.
