View 258: Teacher Appreciation Night

A teacher affects eternity: he can never tell where his influence stops. — Henry Adams

So reads one of the quotes on the back of the program for the Baldwinsville Bees Boys Hockey team’s Teacher Appreciation Night last week at the Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena. Each member of the team invited a teacher to the ceremony who wore the player’s jersey.

Each player wrote a short paragraph of why they chose their teachers for the ceremony which was read over the loud speaker to the parents, teachers, students and fans at the game.  Teachers were given a gift bag by each player as they posed with their student athletes for photos on the ice.

You can tell by their faces, the teachers were thrilled to be there.

    That is one of the best school-related ideas I’ve ever heard. Looks like there were a whole lot of champions at the ice arena last week. Congratulations to all of them – and thank you for the joyful photos and story. You get to the heart of things, Scott.
