This past January, the New York Islanders worked with Mr Proctor and Mr Maragh's Roosevelt Middle School PE classes in order to promote the sport of Floor Ball, an adaptation from tradition hockey. The NY Islanders provided equipment and jerseys for the students to use while Mr. Maragh and Mr. Proctor implemented the new curriculum. The program was an overall success and the students enjoyed themselves. The RMS PE staff is looking forward to working with the National Hockey League's New York Islanders in the future.
