Moose Jaw Warriors visit local classrooms as part of Family Literacy Week

Team members stop by Moose Jaw schools to read to students and promote the love of books and education

Schools throughout the Friendly City had a series of special visitors over the last week, as the Moose Jaw Warriors stopped by local classrooms in support of Family Literacy Week in Saskatchewan.

Members of the Western Hockey League team made appearances at William Grayson, Westmount, St. Michaels, Palliser Heights, Lindale and Empire Schools throughout the week, taking time to read to youngsters and doing their part to grow the love of books and education in local schools.

The day is always highly anticipated, as youngsters get a chance to see their heroes from the ice up close and personal -- with many families taking to social media to thank the team for their visit.

“My boys thought this was the coolest thing,” said Ryan Dionne on Facebook. “Thanks to the players for making memories for these little kids.”

Amanda Lyn Potts and her family were of a similar opinion, saying “Thank you so much! My son was super excited to tell me about this” with a smiley face emoji.

Other fans lauded the team for their continued work as role models in the community, something that has been a staple of the organization throughout their 40 years in Moose Jaw.

Here’s a sampling of some of the sights and scenes in local classrooms this past week!
