Sparky the Dragon may have been the attraction, but the message about teamwork was the greatest takeaway for Seaford Harbor Elementary School students during a program hosted by the New York Islanders on Jan. 18.

The Islanders School Assembly featured sessions for students in grades K-2 and 3-5. Members of the Community Relations team fired up the students, many clad in Islanders gear or blue and orange attire.

For a teamwork demonstration, one student and one teacher were invited to the front for a race to put on goalie equipment. The student had help, while the teacher did not, and it was not a surprise when the student was the winner during both sessions. The youngsters were reminded that school is a team, and they are supported by their principal, teachers and nurse, just like the Islanders have a general manager, coaches and trainers.

Another key message was the importance of living a healthy life through a proper diet and exercise. Students explored healthy eating habits and ways to stay active such as playing team sports or going for a walk.
