Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation Book Jackets Certificate

Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, is proud to partner with the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation  to present the Book Jackets program, designed to encourage central Ohio K-8 students to increase their reading time and sharpen their learning skills.

For all central Ohio teachers interested in participating in this Book Jackets program, Monday, April 1, is the last day to register your classroom to participate in the program. Once signed up, you will receive a packet with everything to inspire your students to read: an instruction manual for you, letters to share with the parents, a classroom poster and puck nametags, and student scorecards. The Columbus Metropolitan Library has created a list of hockey-related books to read at every grade level.

May 3 is the last day to submit students’ reading minutes.  

Here’s a video of former Blue Jackets defenseman Scott Harrington’s Book Jackets visit to a classroom at Winterset Elementary School. Harrington stopped by this Columbus City School to spend time reading with students.
