The Washington Capitals would like to congratulate Darcy Sutton’s third grade class at Saint Louis School in Clarksville, Md., for being selected as the February winners of the Caps@School contest. As the monthly contest winner, Sutton won a special visit from Capitals mascot Slapshot and a Chipotle burrito party for her class.
Sutton worked with Saint Louis School physical education teacher Mary Jane Tomasic to develop a PowerPoint presentation and worksheet using the Caps@School math lesson plan based on Capitals players’ statistics.
At the school Slapshot visited with the students while they enjoyed burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. During the visit the students did a question-and-answer activity and played word games with Slapshot using the blackboard in the classroom.
Through the Caps@School program, the Capitals are making available to local educators a free, online curriculum-enhancing teaching tool for first- through sixth-grade classes. The Caps@School website features lesson plans with Caps players, player fun facts, stories and more.
