You could hear McDowell Elementary School students shouting all through the building, "Let's Go, Red Wings!"
The Detroit Red Wings’ School Assembly Team paid a visit. The group opens every program with an interactive lesson on exercise and healthy eating followed by an energetic hockey shootout competition pitting students against teachers.
Each school receives two full sets of floor hockey equipment complete with hockey sticks and nets courtesy of the Detroit Red Wings Foundation.
In addition, every student receives a Red Wings folder from the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, an informational brochure on college savings strategies, courtesy of Michigan Education Savings Program, and a chance to win Red Wings tickets and participate in Red Wings camps.
It was really fun and the students and teachers had a blast.
Thank you, Red Wings!
