The Washington Capitals would like to congratulate Watkins Mill Elementary School from Gaithersburg, Md. They were selected as the December winners of the Caps@School contest. As last month’s winners, reading intervention teacher Ms. Marquardt won a special Washington Capitals visit and Chipotle burrito party for her students who completed the Caps@School fifth grade reading lesson plan. Slapshot visited with the students while they enjoyed burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. Each student was also able to take home a puck autographed by one of their favorite Washington Capitals players.
