The Port Jefferson School District Athletic Department recently held its seasonal sports fair for elementary students. The Earl L. Vandermeulen High School varsity student-athletes visited Edna Louise Spear Elementary to visit all the pre-K to fourth grade classrooms to read books to the students. Each team read a book about their sport which taught lessons of teamwork and persistence. After reading to the classes, the student-athletes met with the fifth graders outdoors at recess.
The day ended with the fifth grade students participating in stations of lacrosse, track and field, golf, tennis and baseball. Each station was led by varsity coaches and student-athletes.
“The purpose of the Sports Fair is to provide leadership opportunities for our varsity student-athletes, build camaraderie between our younger and older students, boost school spirit and to promote the benefits of participating in athletics,” Athletic Director Adam Sherrard said.
A special thanks to all the varsity student-athletes and coaches Charles Hafner, Drew Dunleavy, Taylor Hoffmann, Brian Snow, Andrew Cosci, Taylor Forstell and Jesse Rosen for helping to highlight the district’s athletic program.
