In a school week that was cut in half for Thanksgiving break, the “We’re All Islanders” school assembly program was still out and about, visiting 4 schools in three days. More than 1,300 children learned the importance of teamwork through the fun and interactive assembly program, hosted by arena hostess Dina and her sidekick, Sparky the Dragon. Schools visited this week included Oquenock Elementary of West Islip, PS 162 of Bayside, Queens, Denton Avenue Elementary of New Hyde Park, and Garden City Park Elementary of Garden City Park. With the holiday so close, the children all showed how thankful they were that the Islanders visited their school by filling the halls with a loud “Let’s Go Islanders!” chant.
