Teamwork Is Tops at Susan E. Wiley

Students at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School learned all about the importance of teamwork thanks to a visit from representatives of the New York Islanders hockey team on Feb. 28.

Representatives from the Islanders, along with their mascot Sparky the Dragon, spoke to students about 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.
