Detroit Red Wings Foundation at St. Patrick School
The Detroit Red Wings Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Kroger Company of Michigan have partnered to bring the Red Wings School Assembly Program to 115 elementary schools during the 2013-14 season. We are pleased to announce that St. Patrick School was one of the chosen schools.
The Red Wings School Assembly Program is a street and floor hockey initiative that began in 2010 to introduce kids to the sport of hockey and encourage an active and healthy lifestyle. During each visit, the school assembly team opens the program with a lesson on exercise and healthy eating tips, followed by a fun face-off between teachers and students during a hockey shootout competition.
Each school receives two full sets of floor hockey equipment complete with hockey sticks and goalie nets courtesy of the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, as well as a Red Wings folder and a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan keepsake magnet that lists five fun after school activities.
