January Caps@School Winners
The visit began with a question-and-answer session with Alzner during which the students were able to ask him about his life as a professional hockey player. Alzner then visited with each of the students as they enjoyed burritos, chips and salsa courtesy of Chipotle. Each student went home with an autographed Alzner player card and a goody bag from the Caps.
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.
