The Washington Capitals and Defenseman Mike Green to Reward Chesterbrook Academy for Participating in So Kids Can

Three kindergarten classes raised $1,550 for Children’s National Medical Center and hope to raise $2,000 for KaBOOM! through Green’s So Kids Can program

Kindergarten classes from Chesterbrook Academy Elementary, in Chantilly, Va., will attend a Washington Capitals team practice and pizza party hosted by Capitals defenseman Mike Green as a reward for their participation in So Kids Can, a fundraising initiative organized by Green and Elliot in the Morning’s Elliot Segal that benefits a different youth focused nonprofit each year. This year, all proceeds will go to KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit based in Washington D.C., that builds playgrounds in underserved communities. KaBOOM! will use all proceeds to build a Capitals-themed playground on a deserving site in the D.C. area. Following the event, students will continue to focus on learning about playground construction by taking a playground field trip and group together to create their own “Ultimate Playground Vision” later in the year.

Students raised money through various initiatives, including silent auctions, Capitals gear raffles, Casual Day Fridays and a St. Patrick’s Day “Going Green” contest.

This is the third year Chesterbrook Academy has participated in So Kids Can as part of a community service initiative through Nobel Learning Communities’ Giving Without Walls curriculum. Giving without Walls allows students to be active participants in service-learning opportunities and integrates meaningful community service to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and encourage lifelong civic engagement.

The event will take place tomorrow, Wednesday, October 6 at 10:30 a.m. at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, VA. The address is 627 North Glebe Road and the Iceplex is on the 8th floor of Ballston Mall.
