On February 24th, the 4th grade students from Maxwell Elementary attended the First Flight Field Trip, presented by the Anaheim Ducks. This year, the theme was “Light the Lamp”, where over 16,000 students from Southern California schools learned the principles of electricity and how it is used within the game of hockey. Each class spent time outside of the Honda Center, participating in hands-on activities before taking their seats inside, becoming a part of “the world’s largest classroom”.

As a new segment this year, 4th grade teachers Angela Thomas and Kristin Jones were invited to join several other teachers and students, along with Ducks players, to participate in a skills competition. They attempted to shoot goals, pass the puck, and skate their fastest across the ice. Although it was noted that Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Jones may not be scooped up by the NHL anytime soon, a fantastic time was had by all!
