CLARK, NJ - Students in Jacqualena Grigoli’s Kindergarten class received a visit from the NJ Devil’s hockey mascot as part of the Stick with It: Achievement in Academics program. This program encourages students to read each day, seven days a week.
Students are asked to have their parents help them record their minutes on their reading log. The students in Grigoli’s class won a pizza party and a visit with the NJ Devil for the amount of minutes logged on their reading logs. The students were very proud of their reading log achievements and were even more excited to find out the class had won.
The NJ Devil arrived with pizza, water, and juice for the class. He interacted with the students, made them laugh, and got them excited about reading.
Each student was given a gift bag which included an Achievement in Academics shirt. The NJ Devil took the time to personally sign each child’s shirt individually. He also had some time to have a dance party with the class to a few of their favorite songs.
The NJ Devil posed for pictures and the class received a Congratulations banner to hang in their classroom. The NJ Devil’s visit was a great motivator and reward for the students reading achievements.
