The Manchester Monarchs, in partnership with the New Hampshire State Board of Education and the New Hampshire Department of Education, hosted the fourth annual Monarchs Education Day on Wednesday, November 13, 2013. This event reflects the Monarchs continued commitment to New Hampshire’s youth and their education. It was a fun and educational day that students will never forget. On this day, the Verizon Wireless Arena became more than just an entertainment venue, it was the largest classroom in New Hampshire.
Each student received a workbook 2-4 weeks prior to the game, depending on when each teacher/administrator would like to incorporate the material. This tool incorporates all the educational aspects of the American Hockey League while harnessing the excitement of the great sport of hockey. This year we worked hard with other administrators from schools across the state to build the workbook in the style of the Common Core. That means all of these interesting, fun and educational exercises were directly linked back to the website where they can be referenced. This allows teachers to stick to the style of the Common Core and build the workbooks into their curriculum, rather than deviating from the material for this game.
This year when the students arrived they had the ability to utilize the workbooks at the game to hone skills such as simple transactions, making healthy choice, and pledging to not be a bully. Wellness and anti-bullying will be main focus points for our concourse information and activities for the children.
It is the mission of the Manchester Monarchs to be a pillar of the community while providing wholesome and economical family entertainment.
