BOSTON, MA -
On Tuesday, October 13, the Boston Bruins introduced their comprehensive educational program, "Bruins I.C.E. (I Can Excel) School" presented by AT&T, in elementary school classrooms statewide. "Bruins I.C.E. School" features six separate academic divisions including Health & Fitness, French, Geography, Math, Reading and Science, with grade appropriate curriculums ranging from kindergarten through fifth grade.
The curriculums were created with the help of a 12-member committee comprised of elementary school teachers throughout Massachusetts. All of the subject materials incorporate hockey and the Bruins into lesson plans that fall within Massachusetts's framework guidelines. Each academic subject consists of five complete lesson plans that follow the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS).
In addition to being a unique approach to keeping kids interested in learning, members of the Boston Bruins will be visiting participating schools throughout the season. Teachers choosing to participate in the "Bruins I.C.E. School" are eligible for fun Bruins prizes, including the opportunity to win Bruins autographed merchandise and a classroom visit from a current Bruins player. Each student that participates in the Bruins I.C.E. School will receive a certificate of completion, signed by a Boston Bruins player.
