On Tuesday, November 5, the Fischer Saints had a great opportunity to share in some San Jose spirit by attending the San Jose Sharks game. Even though I’ve lived in the Bay Area my whole life, I’ve never had the chance to see a Sharks game so it was special for me to share my first experience with my students.

Students began arriving around 7pm to get ready for the game, and we quickly funneled inside to grab our seats.  Armed with some delicious game food and excitement, we arrived just in time to see the puck dropped for the first period.

Throughout the game, students watched intently as the puck flew across the ice and cheered loudly whenever the Sharks scored. When the Sharks made their second goal of the game, students erupted in cheers and high-fived other members in the crowd, really showing how much spirit our Fischer Saints have! As we left the game, the students talked about how much they enjoyed the game and how they couldn’t wait to go to another one. We all had an amazing time and walked away even bigger Sharks fans! A huge thank you to the San Jose Sharks Foundation for this amazing opportunity.
