Mystery Readers Wanted!

PreK through Grade 5 will be enjoying Mystery Reader Mondays for the month of May to go along with our Parents as Reading Partners program. We invite any family member to come and read to the class.

Here is a sign up link for the available times and dates for each teacher.

If you would like to be a mystery reader, please look for the teacher whose class you would like to read to and enter your name in the slot for the date and time that you prefer. Please bring a book that you would like to read to the class on the day of your visit and be sure to sign in at the main office when you arrive. Remember, it’s a surprise, so don’t tell your child that you or a family member are going to be the mystery reader! Thank you for participating in PARP!

Tj and Dominic Dockery will once again be running their clinics out of Cornerstone Ice Arena. Each 6 hour session is themed with an emphasis on improving the player's speed, agility and puck control.

TJ and Dom bring not only a vast knowledge of clinic experience but, playing at the professional level, they can implement what is current at the collegiate and professional levels.

Fri - 5/6, 5/13 & 5/20 - 7:40pm-8:30pm

Pucks, pucks and more pucks! This clinic will focus on the player's ability to handle the puck while on the move. They will be shown how to use their edges to create scoring opportunities as well as escape pressure and create space. Particular importance will be placed on footwork and body positioning while shooting. Players will be grouped by age/ability to maximize development.

Wed - 5/25, 6/1 & 6/8- 7:10pm-8pm

Thurs - 6/9- 5:50pm-6:40pm

Building on the first session, this clinic will focus on increasing the player's speed and agility with and without the puck. Players will become comfortable making moves and shooting at top speed. This clinic is all about getting faster - skating, shooting, scoring!

You can register for the 6-day session or single days. Select walk on if doing single days. Register through our website
