Dressed head to toe in their New York Islanders hockey gear, eighth-graders at Copiague Middle School were treated to a special assembly when Islanders players Scott Mayfield and Anthony Beauvillier visited the school on Nov. 19 for Islanders School Day. Copiague Middle School was selected for its winning application on school spirt.

During School Day, select schools are visited by members of the Islanders team for an assembly. During the assembly, Beauvillier and Mayfield spoke to the Copiague students about the importance of education, staying active, eating healthy and making smart decisions in life.

Students in all grades had the chance to ask thoughtful questions and selected eighth-graders who received a “golden ticket” had the added opportunity to receiving the players’ autographs.
