Maya Angelou Elementary School

Blackhawks Visit & Donation

Angelou's PE teacher, Ron Carone, set up a visit by the Chicago Blackhawks’ Get Out And Learn, or GOAL, program. On December 17, 2018, the Blackhawks taught 60 students the fundamentals of hockey. The Blackhawks’ representatives donated the 30 hockey sticks, 30 balls and two nets for the school’s use, and students were presented gifts after the sessions.
