Elmira Jackals in the Community February 2016
Troy High School
The Jackals headed "South of the Border," on February 3rd to spend time with our fans and fellow hockey players in Troy, PA. Colin Jacobs, Matt Garbowsky, and Alex Vazzano met the 7th and 8th graders at Troy High and taught them a bit about hockey. Following, the Troy Floor Hockey Team joined the guys for a game before they had to head back to Elmira! Thank you Troy High for being great fans, and for keeping hockey alive in the area.
Send The Jackals Some Love
Local Elementary Schools from Hammondsport, Odessa-Montour, Elmira City, Towanda Area, and Northern Tioga Area sent Valentine's to the players. The guys loved the Valentines! They sent their love back to each classroom with an autographed picture Valentine of their own! Thank you to our local schools and students for being such amazing fans, and for showing the guys how much they really are loved, especially when spending holidays away from their families and friends.
Mansfield University Facility Tour
The Student Ambassadors from Mansfield University spent the evening taking in the First Arena on February 17th. We showed them the ropes of daily and game day operations, including how we produce the Jumbotron. We spoke to them about possible internship opportunities and how we could become more involved with each other.
Center Street Elementary After School Program
Nick Tuzzolino and Spiro Goulakos headed over to Center Street Elementary School on the 25th to hang out at the Center Street After School Program. They answered questions about hockey, life, and the Jackals. They played floor hockey with the younger students, and dodgeball with the older student. We had a great time, and look forward to seeing you again next year!
Elmira High School Character Counts Program
Members of Elmira High School attended out game on February 26th against the Reading Royals. Students were selected as part of the EHS "Character Counts Program," and recieved a free ticket to Friday's game, along with discounted tickets for staff and family members. The Character Counts Program at Elmira High School recognizes students for having high character, displaying leadership, and/or academic success in and out of the classroom. We would like to once again congratulate Elmira High School, keep up the good work!
Diven Elementary Catch of the Day!
On February 26th, Diven Elementary students were honored as a part of their Good Kid Patrol "Catch of the Day" program. All Good Kid Patrols earned on the "Catch of the Day," have their name put into the Main Office Net. Once a month, 10 names are pulled from the Main Office Net and those students are awarded with 4 tickets each to an upcoming Jackals game. We love rewarding our local youth for making good choices and making their schools a better place. Congrats Diven Elementary students, keep up the good work!
