Family Dynamics Goes to Ellis Island

October 21, 2016 / SCO News

New York, NY – Our friends at Garden of Dreams and the New York Rangers treated the children from SCO Family Dynamics’ after school program at MS 35 to a fun and educational trip to Ellis Island. The kids boarded the ferry and were transported back in time to 1920, where each was given the identity of an immigrant arriving at Ellis Island. The hands-on history lesson was led by the incredible Park Rangers as well as our own NY Rangers: Chris Kreider and Oscar Lindberg along with alumni Dave Maloney and Tom Laidlaw.   The amazing trip was part of the Garden of Dreams’ ‘Show Kids New York’ program.

Many thanks to the Garden of Dreams, the staff at Ellis Island, and the New York Rangers for hosting this fantastic experience for our children.
