Students of Aquebogue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District took part in a special assembly on Feb. 28, during which the New York Islanders presented an interactive program on team building.   

The program kicked off with a short video on the importance of teamwork, followed by a hands-on activity that demonstrated the concept. Working together, students were tasked with dressing their peers in cumbersome hockey gear.

The presentation’s message reinforced the themes of the school’s spirit week, which was held the week of Feb. 26 to teach students about teamwork and celebrating each other’s differences.
