School Assembly Program Hits 3,500 In First Week

Photo Gallery
Dina and Sparky were all over Long Island this week as they kicked off the first of what is to be 100 schools they visit with the We’re All Islanders school assembly program. The duo covered schools from each county as they visited schools in Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk. The assembly program is a half hour long skit hosted by the Islanders arena hostess, Dina, and her good friend Sparky. The two talk to the children about the importance of teamwork by drawing comparisons between personnel in the school being the equivalent to some of the people that make up the New York Islanders. A video is shown that takes the children on a backstage tour of Iceworks where they meet other important members of the Islanders team, such as trainer Garret Timms, assistant equipment manager Richard “Shakey” Krouse, and strength and conditioning coach Jesse Demers. The assembly also features an interactive demonstration in which a team of children work together to get one of their teammates dressed in goalie equipment as a teacher works alone to do the same. At the conclusion of the assembly, the students fill the auditorium with a thunderous “Let’s Go Islanders” chant and then learn from Dina that they all will be walking away with some great Islanders goodies.

Over 3,500 children over the course of 5 schools were visited this week. These schools included PS 150 in Sunnyside, Queens, Saltzman East Memorial School in Farmingdale, Cherokee Street School in Ronkonkoma, Robert Moses Middle School of North Babylon, and Abbey Lane School located in Levittown. Dina and Sparky still have 95 more schools to visit as they continue to spread the important message of working together as a team to children across Long Island.
