On Thursday, December 16, some Clinton students and their families attended a hockey game at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the home of the New York Islanders. Organized by Mr. Levin, the event intended to bring Clinton families together in an environment outside of school.
The New York Islanders played a close game against the Chicago Blackhawks.
