With the help of Sparky, the Islander team mascot, the importance of teamwork was presented in an assemby today at Fork Lane. The children were entertained with two videos showing the Islander team at its best and showed them that teamwork is present in the community, not just on the ice.

Today,January 17, 2017, we got a chance to catch up to our own Mr. Scardino as he read a book to the second grade class of Mrs. Marschean. It was quite facinatting to see the children participate in a classroom type of environment with Mr. Scardino as he read a book to them. Mr., Scardino asked about the author and illustrator and got the children's appetite flowing towards the book .
As a kindergarten teacher, Valerie Pfundstein discovered there were no books about Veterans. So she did the next best thing - she wrote one herself. Her book, Veterans: Heroes in our Neighborhood, was presented at today's assembly honoring our Vets.
