A Visit from Athletes Helping Athletes

Fifth-graders at Cherokee Street Elementary School were recently visited by the Connetquot High School’s Athletes Helping Athletes Club for an opportunity to engage in leadership and team building activities.

Throughout the visit, each athlete spoke to the younger students about how they build self-confidence, and continue to work to reach their goals. Additionally, they took time to explain the many advantages of participating in extracurricular programs, such as music and sports.

The Connetquot High School Athletes Helping Athletes Club consists of more than 60 service-minded students who pledge to stay away from alcohol and drugs and work to serve as positive role models for elementary school students.
