Hat Trick for Reading
To stimulate interest in reading among local elementary school students
Each student in your class will be given a Mallards bookmark to help promote the program, encourage participation and track their progress toward scoring a reading “hat trick.” In the sport of hockey, scoring three goals in one game is considered a hat trick. When your student reads three books, they will have earned their way to a Mallards game! Students who reach the achievement will receive a complimentary Mallards ticket voucher. It will be up to the individual teacher to determine appropriate reading material and provide verification books have been read. Upon completion of the program, a list of achieving students will be provided to the Mallards. The Mallards are proud to offer Quad City area students the opportunity to attend a game at no cost in reward for their hard work in the classroom.
THE MALLARDS WILL PROVIDE
-Mallards bookmarks for each student
-Player and mascot appearances when possible to support the program, this could include anything ranging from a school-wide assembly to a small group visit
-If your school attends as a group, the school will be recognized on the iWireless Center video board and will be announced as one of the groups in attendance for that game.
