The Pre-K students of Saint Lawrence Elementary and Middle School enjoyed a visit from the San Jose Barracuda hockey Program in mid-January.
The Barracuda Club sent over members of their community to run hockey and skill-building activities, such as partner passing drills, agility training, and shooting goals. The Pre-K students played, learned and enjoyed the hockey fun, filling the school’s gym with laughter and excitement! After celebrating the successful visit, each student was given a team keychain as a token of participation from the San Jose Barracuda Club.
The students will continue their community involvement by attending a San Jose Barracuda Hockey game on February 11 at the SAP Center. Mr. Madej, a Pre-K parent and Alum of Saint Lawrence Elementary and Middle School, helped with ticket prices for the students and staff allowing the opportunity to attend a professional sporting event for the Pre-K families at a bargain price.
When asked what her favorite thing about the Barracuda visit was, Mrs. M the Pre-K Director, said, “Team-building! It is very important for students to learn how to be part of a team, let their talents shine while sharing, and to cheer on others at the same time. The Barracuda activities made the concept of being part of a team, fun and applicable for our class!”
This was the second year the San Jose Barracuda Club visited Saint Lawrence Pre-K.
