The Bruins introduced their comprehensive educational program, "Bruins I.C.E. (I Can Excel) School" presented by AT&T, in elementary school classrooms statewide on Tuesday.
The newly founded "Bruins I.C.E. School" will feature six separate academic divisions including health and fitness, French, geography, math, reading and science for grades ranging from kindergarten through fifth grade.
A 12-member committee comprised of elementary school teachers throughout Massachusetts created the curriculum. All of the subject materials incorporate hockey and the Bruins into lesson plans that fall within the state's framework guidelines. Each academic subject consists of five complete lesson plans that follow the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS).
Members of the Bruins will be visiting participating schools throughout the season, and teachers choosing to participate in the "Bruins I.C.E. School" are eligible for Bruins prizes, including the opportunity to win Bruins autographed merchandise and a classroom visit from a current Bruins player. Each student that participates in the Bruins I.C.E. School will receive a certificate of completion signed by a Bruins player.
