The Washington Capitals would like to congratulate Bryan Hill and his students at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School in Washington, D.C., for being selected as the March winners of the Caps@School contest. As the monthly contest winner, Hill won a special visit from the Capitals and a Chipotle burrito party for one of his fifth-grade classes, as well as tickets to the April 23 Washington Capitals game at Verizon Center.
Hill worked with the students by using the Caps@School math and language arts worksheets as activities to help prepare them for their D.C. Comprehensive Assessment System (DC-CAS) testing. He used the worksheets to formulate higher level questioning for the students based on Caps trivia and statistics.
At the school the students enjoyed a burrito lunch courtesy of Chipotle. Capitals staff members did an interactive Capitals trivia session with the students using the SMART Board in the classroom. The students also had an opportunity to look at and try on some Capitals hockey gear.
Through the Caps@School program, the Capitals are making available to local educators a free, online curriculum-enhancing teaching tool for first- through sixth-grade classes. The Caps@School website features lesson plans with Caps players, 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.
