Students at The Langley School “Rocked the Red” on Friday, Nov. 30 when the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup trophy made a stop at the school as part of its victory tour celebrating the Washington Capitals’ 2018 championship win.
During a brief assembly, students in every grade level had the opportunity to see, touch, and take photos with the Stanley Cup as well as meet the Capitals’ mascot, Slapshot. This exciting experience was made possible by Roger Mody, a Langley parent and co-owner for Monumental Sports & Entertainment, who arranged for the trophy to spend several hours at the school.
“Whether in the classroom or on the athletic field, we teach our students the value of collaboration, perseverance, and good sportsmanship,” says Dr. Elinor Scully, head of The Langley School. “The Stanley Cup embodies these qualities and serves as an example of what can be achieved when we work together to overcome challenges. This was a truly unforgettable experience for our students and faculty.”
