Every Child a Reader


Gift PolicyOur students’ lives are enriched by the gift of reading. They have a lifelong love of reading that enables them to be more independent in all aspects of home, school and community life. Reading for pleasure and knowledge opens doors to more opportunities for our students.

The Mavericks Every Child a Reader Program provides individualized reading instruction to PREP 3 students in grade one to grade six. We are in our 8th year of providing a reading program that is fully funded by the generosity of our sponsors, both corporate and individual. We require only a nominal materials fee of $40 at the time of registration. Our goal is to keep the cost of this program minimal in order to encourage all families to participate.

Dependent on instructor availability, PREP also provides reading instruction for students who are not eligible for the funded sessions or who would like additional reading sessions. Please contact Katie Copithorne at (403) 282-5011 ext.112 or[1] more info on Fee for Service reading instruction.

What do we do in reading?

Based on current research, we developed a reading program with measurable results. Each of the reading groups, Emerging Reader (Stage 1) and Developing Reader (Stage 2) incorporates the following five components into every 45 minute session:

Programs include a reading progress report which is shared with the school, homework and access to our extensive library to enhance the reading experience at home as well.

Students have made significant gains in their reading abilities and parents have been extremely positive in their feedback.
