Representatives from the New York Islanders, along with mascot Sparky the Dragon, visited Santapogue on Jan. 26.

The visit was centered on the importance of teamwork and how working together, as either a class or a school, can accomplish more than doing it alone. To illustrate the concept, one student and one teacher had a race to dress in goalie equipment. The student had the assistance of his classmates, while the teacher tried to accomplish the task solo.

Students received folders and pencils from the New York Islanders and were also encouraged to register online for their “Blades for Grades” program, where earning good grades can score them two tickets to an Islanders game.
