Northborough – The Lincoln Street School (LSS) hosted the Boston Bruins Youth Hockey and Blades, the Bruin mascot, Nov. 14.

Members of the Boston Bruins staff and alumnus visited the school and had an interactive program for grades three to five, providing them with a Bruins street hockey clinic. Blades went room to room through kindergarten and second-grade classrooms.

The day was broken up into three sessions for grades three, four and five, which consisted of over 120 students. The kids were greeted with a speech from Bruins” alumnus Tommy Songin and Mike Dargin, manager of Youth Hockey Development. The kids eagerly ran to get their sticks and began to practice passing the ball. Then, the group broke into some drills, followed by a street hockey scrimmage.

Patricia Rollins is a physical education teacher at the school.

“That is what it is all about – helping kids get active,” she said. “They had a great time doing it. I was so happy that I helped bring this program to LSS.”

The kids will have the opportunity to continue to talk and play hockey with the equipment donation from the Bruins.?In addition to the donated items, the team provided supplemental curriculum materials to incorporate the sport of hockey and the Bruins into lesson plans that align with the common core standards.
