Just like the Cavaliers are celebrating their history throughout the 50th Season in 2019-20, local students participating in the Cavs Read to Achieve program, presented by Cleveland-Cliffs, will be taking a trip down memory lane this season as well. This month, participating classrooms revisited the 1970’s, where it all began for the Wine and Gold.
The second grade class from Brook Park Memorial Elementary School in Brook Park had the fun opportunity to learn about groovy games from that era. On Monday, they spent the afternoon at Cleveland Clinic Courts, where they spent time with Cavs in-arena host Ahmaad and members of the PowerHouse Dance Team and Scream Team.
The kids were able to play far-out board games from the 70’s, including Guess Who, Jenga, Perfection, Connect 4, and Hungry, Hungry Hippos. The Wine and Gold game night also included getting to shoot hoops and learn dance moves from the entertainers. The PowerHouse and Scream Team also performed for the second graders, who were sent home with Cavs swag bags and tickets to an upcoming game.
