The Stockton Heat, Office of Mayor Tubbs and Stockton Unified School District are partnering together for a new literacy program!  Stockton Heat hockey players will read to students twice a month during the upcoming Heat Hockey season from October through March 21.  Every student that participates will be given free tickets to the Heat game on April 14th while parents will be offered tickets at a discounted rate and the school that ranks highest in the “Reading Face-Off” challenge will be honored at that game.

The Taft, Hamilton, Van Buren, Fremont-Lopez and Monroe Elementary School’s will be the five participating schools in the competition. Each school will be scoring a goal for every book read by a second-grade student and the school with the most goals at the end of the program will be declared the winner.

The scoreboard is updated every month!
