The Chestnut Street School was treated to a special visit from New York Islander’s mascot Sparky the Dragon on Jan. 3.

The Islanders-sponsored school assembly program focused on teamwork as a special lesson for the kindergarten students. The event opened with videos showcasing the Islanders and their community service effort, which Islanders Community Events Tour member Dina followed by introducing Sparky. Dina and Sparky engaged the students in lessons on working together and being valuable members of the school and community.

Following the presentations, students took part in a teamwork activity where groups were tasked with dressing an individual in hockey gear. At the conclusion, each student was sent home with an Islanders fan pack.

Principal Faith Tripp and all of Chestnut Street thank Sparky and the Islanders Community Events Team for educating the students on teamwork.
