Laker men's hockey team visits Minetto ElementarySmiles, laughter and joy were on display at Minetto Elementary School recently as the Oswego State men's hockey team stopped in to spend an afternoon with the students.
Students from across all grade levels got to spend time with the Lakers, who in addition to taking questions about hockey spoke about the importance of education along with living an active and healthy lifestyle.
"The students love when the Lakers come," said Minetto teacher Kathleen Shafer, who helped organize the visit. "Many students are already Laker fans and regularly attend the games. Some students are new friends because they come to school."
More than a dozen players along with Assistant Coach Jon Whitelaw took part in various activities, including physical education games, arts and crafts, reading to students and answering questions.
The Lakers spent time in classrooms, the gym, the art room, music room and sat down to eat lunch with some students.
