December Caps@School Winners
The Washington Capitals would like to congratulate Watkins Mill Elementary School from Gaithersburg, Md. They were selected as the December winners of the Caps@School contest. As last month’s winners, reading intervention teacher Ms. Marquardt won a special Washington Capitals visit and Chipotle burrito party for her students who completed the Caps@School fifth grade reading lesson plan. Slapshot visited with the students while they enjoyed burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. Each student was also able to take home a puck autographed by one of their favorite Washington Capitals players.
Through the Caps@School program, the Capitals are making available to local educators a free, online curriculum-enhancing teaching tool for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade classes. The Caps@School website features lesson plans with Alex Ovechkin and Mike Green, player fun facts, stories and more.
Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., teachers can enroll their classes for free and start to download lesson plans at the Caps@School website at CapsAtSchool.com
