Wolverine Hockey Reading and Math Program

Six Wolverine Hockey Players visited Stevensbrook Elementary School to assist students with their reading and math. The program was started to allow Bridgton Academy Hockey Players to be positive role models to a small group of students from Stevensbrook Elementary School. The players usually spend an hour with each class, assisting the teacher, leading reading programs and interacting with the students.

Eric Seigel and Fred Hein spent time with Mrs. Clark's 1st grade class. Not only did Fred and Eric show the class how skilled they are at math, but they both proved to be highly entertaining readers.

Ben Pearl and Mike Pearless joined Mrs. Jones' 2nd grade class. Both Mike and Ben demonstrated their superior skill playing Subtraction Bingo. The groups were very engaged with the program.

Matt Delgiudice and Phil Baker-Coe spend their time with Mrs. Lepage's 3rd grade class. The class was broken into small reading groups. Matt and Phil worked with each group taking turns reading and discussing what they read.

Overall, it was a very exciting day for both the students and the players. The classes were given an autograph picture of each player to display in their room.
