Tampa Bay Lightning

Program Overview & Registration

Teachers, Get Started Now:

Review the program information provided and register your classroom using the form below by September 30th, 2013.

Twenty lucky classrooms who are registered will be randomly selected to receive a “ThunderBug Reading Rally” during the reading period, to help motivate classes to reach their goals.

Classroom Materials

After registration, teachers will receive the following materials:

  • Student booklet (contains program information, bookmark and reading scorecard)
  • Classroom poster/minute tracker
  • Teacher ticket vouchers

Reading Period

The student reading period runs September 30 - November 8, 2013

Students will record the number of minutes read daily after school using the reading scorecard in their booklet and submit their scorecard to you at the end of each week.  Scorecards should be verified by a parent/guardian and child's teacher.

Students receive incentives for reaching individual reading milestones as follows within a 60 day period:

  • Read 20 minutes/day x 20 days = 400 minutes = sticker + free Lightning ticket voucher
  • Read 20 minutes/day x 40 days = 800 minutes = second free ticket voucher

Classrooms in which every student reads 800 minutes (20 minutes for 40 days) will be entered to win a personal classroom visit by a Lightning celebrity.

When teachers register their classroom and participate in the program they will receive two Lightning ticket vouchers for an upcoming Lightning home game (please see dates below). Following program completion, a select number will also receive $250 gift cards to Lakeshore Learning to enhance your classroom materials.

Minutes Submission

Teachrs, please submit your list of classroom minutes online at the end of the program by November 20, 2013.  A submission link will be available from November 8- 20, 2013.

Once minutes are submitted, certificates of completion, stickers and student vouchers will be mailed.  Classes with full participation will be entered into a drawing for the Lightning celebrity visit and winning classrooms will be notified.
