Letter: Thanks to UWSP Men’s Hockey
To the Editor-
Hats off to the UWSP Pointer Men’s Hockey Team for taking time out of their busy schedules to skate with our students! The hockey team and second grade pen pals from Bannach Elementary and Plover-Whiting Elementary had a meet and greet at the ice rink. Even with the various levels of skating ability (some children had never even put on ice skates); this experience was amazing for each person involved.
We are so grateful these young men took it upon themselves to help teach some of our students how to skate and challenge those who were already skaters. A big shout out for helping to lace skates on over 125 kids!
The Pointer Men’s Team definitely helped build our students’ self confidence and showed them how fun it is to be on the ice. A true thank you to all who were involved! We hope you continue to have a great season! Go Pointers!
