I.C.E.= Integrity, Character, Excellence

The Johnstown Tomahawks are proud to introduce their anti-bullying / pro-teamwork presentation called, “Stick Up for Kids”. Tomahawks players talk about I.C.E. (Integrity, Character, Excellence), how they portray those three traits on and off the ice, along with how the students can portray integrity, character, and excellence at school and at home. Thank you to Johnstown Christian School, East Side Elementary, United Elementary, Portage Elementary, Eagle View Elementary, Ferndale Elementary, North Star Central Elementary, St. Andrew’s School, Maple Ridge Elementary, and Westside Elementary for allowing us to come into your schools and discuss the importance of team work and how bullying needs to stop so students can work towards one goal!

The Tomahawks would like to say thank you to the Special Olympics of Western PA for allowing us to help out during your event!

Anti-Bullying & Teamwork Talk

January 19-21, 2016- Central Cambria & Jackson Elementary Anti-Bullying & Teamwork Discussion

On January 19, Logan Hudson, Andrew Romano, Adam Ostrowksi, Andrew Lindgren, and Luke Picek talked with the Jackson Elementary students on January 19, 2016 about teamwork and anti-bullying. Following the discussion they answered questions about teamwork, bullying, and what the Tomahawks do on a daily basis.

On January 21, Logan Hudson, Andrew Romano, Niko Coffman, and Andrew Lindgren talked with the elementary students at Central Cambria. They first started out by explaining their team motto to the students. “ICE” stands for Integrity, Character, and Excellence. They described situations where they show those three qualities on and off the ice. They then told stories about being bullied when they were younger and explained what they did to overcome their bully. Following their real life stories, they placed 8 balloons on the ground and said 8 statements; the students then had to say which statement was true and which was false. The players invited students up to pop the balloons after each statement was read. A question and answer session was held immediately following the event where students received prizes for correct answers.

Thank you Jackson Elementary and Central Cambria for helping us kick off our Anti-Bullying / Pro-Teamwork Talk!
