David Steckel and Slapshot Visit Wayside Elementary School to Host Burrito Party

by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals
ARLINGTON, Va. – Washington Capitals center David Steckel and Slapshot visited Wayside Elementary School in Potomac, Md., on Thursday, Jan. 28, to treat the winner of October’s Caps@School contest to a Chipotle Mexican Grill Burrito Party. Steckel answered some questions and played games with the 27 second-grade students before they dined on the Chipotle Mexican Grill burritos.

The students won the Chipotle Mexican Grill Burrito Party because their teacher, Andrea Monica, submitted a complete lesson plan to the Caps@School website. Mrs. Monica’s second-grade class did the Caps hockey-themed, fourth-grade math lesson plan. The hour-long party concluded with a classroom photo, autographed player cards by Steckel and a gift bag from the Capitals.
