Sign Up For Literacy Day, Presented by Davis Vision

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

While they are out on the ice, the New York Islanders are all about focusing on hockey, but all of the players and management know how important education is for the youths on Long Island. To show support for schools and students all across Long Island, the team will take part in the third annual New York Islanders Literacy Day Program, presented by Davis Vision. 

 And the Islanders want all Long Island elementary school principals and teachers, to get their schools involved in the big event! For one day—October 21, 2008—the entire team will be visiting schools throughout Long Island for Islanders Literacy Day, discussing the importance of reading. To play their part, players and staff will be reading a short story to the students. 
In order to sign your school up for this unique opportunity, send us an email providing us with a little background on the literacy program in your school. In addition, please state why you feel the students in your school are deserving of this opportunity. This contest will only run until October 1st, so make sure to act fast.

All selected schools will be notified in a timely manner so that they may arrange an assembly. The Assembly will take place during a 1.5 hour timeslot on the morning of October 21, 2008.
