Paralympic Sled Hockey Team Visits Poplin Before Games
Players from the Men’s United States Paralympic Sled Hockey Team visited with Poplin students during a very special presentation on Wednesday, February 19, 2014. This visit happened days before the team leaves to compete in the paralympic competition in Sochi, Russia beginning on March 7 - 14, 2014.
During the presentation each player introduced themselves and gave background information about how he became a member of the hockey team. Each person had a powerful message about perseverance, going for your dreams, and believing in yourself. “I learned that even though they have disabilities, they keep on playing,” said Blake Harold a fifth grader in Kris Martino’s class.
The team invited students to visit the Extreme Ice Hockey Center in Indian Trail to watch scrimmages on Friday, February 21, 2014 and Saturday, February 22, 2014.
$473.23 Raised During Caught On Tape Relay for Life Fundraiser!
Poplin students raised $473.23 for Relay for Life during the Caught on Tape event on Friday, February 28, 2014! Students contributed $1 donations to purchase one piece of duct tape and then taped Principal Scott Broome and Assistant Principal Jim Eversole to the wall.
Students from all grades participated and seemed to enjoy the fun fundraiser. One fourth grade student, Shane Gregory, donated $10.00 just so he could tape Mr. Broome and Mr. Eversole to the wall. The next Relay for Life fundraiser will be March 25-27, 2014 - "E-Lemon-8 Cancer." So far students have raised over $1,800 for Relay for Life.
