Tampa Bay Lightning

Parent and Student Program Overview

You child’s teacher can register for the Lightning’s Score With Reading program by October 10, 2014.

Once a teacher registers their classroom, all program materials are sent for them to distribute to your child.

The student reading period runs October 13 - November 30, 2014. During this time, students will record the number of minutes read daily after school using the reading scorecard on a provided bookmark, which will be submitted to their teacher at the end of each week.

Student Incentives:

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

  • Read 20 minutes/day x 20 days = 400 minutes = free Lightning ticket voucher
  • to 2015 home game and Score with Reading bracelet
  • Read 20 minutes/day x 40 days = 800 minutes = second free ticket voucher
  • to 2015 home game and Score with Reading bracelet and Bolts Book Bag

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. Additionally, eight chosen classrooms will be rewarded with Lightning Street Hockey at their school or an educational field trip to Amalie Arena (transportation provided on the Lightning Fan Express.)
