To promote the importance of reading along with academic and extracurricular goal-setting, the Abington Senior High School District One Playoff-Bound Galloping Ghosts Girls’ Lacrosse Team visited Roslyn Elementary School today to support the school’s “Stick with READING!” event — a double play on the word “Stick!”

The high school coaches and players read to the Roslyn students and spoke to them about their love of reading, the importance of goal-setting with regard to academics, as well as, extracurricular activities, and the benefits of teamwork.

The team also ran a mini-lacrosse clinic for students in grades 4 & 5 who reached their reading goals through the reading program. The high school players distributed bookmarks that feature the titles of the teams’ favorite children’s books.

The visit takes place the day before the teams’ second round District playoff game which will take place at Schwarzman Stadium at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday May 18, 2017. Come out to support the team – Go Ghosts!
