Islanders Offer Life Lessons


St. James Elementary received a special visit from New York Islanders hockey players Jean-Francois Berube and Eric Boulton on Nov. 18.
The PTA entered the online contest posted on the Islanders website and won based on the school’s community involvement and, of course, their love of the Islanders. The players spoke to the students about working hard, persevering, following their dreams, being a team player in all walks of life and getting along with others. Autographs and pictures with the fourth-graders concluded the visit.
