Another school is creating a buzz on social media - Goolsby Elementary School. Students and staff cheered on the Knights while showing off their hockey gear and posters.
The Vegas Golden Knights launched the initiative in partnership with NV Energy and the Clark County School District School-Community Partnership Program encouraging all Clark County schools to activate their shields by sporting Golden Knights jerseys and team gear.
Classrooms were encouraged to show their support for the team throughout the playoffs in a creative and imaginative way with chants, posters, gear, and cheers.
A winner will be selected each round that the Golden Knights are playing.
Schools showed their support using #KnightUp on social media. Here are some of the other schools that participated.
Students at Derfelt Elementary representing our @GoldenKnights ! We wrote acrostic poems with “Knights beat Kings” and made word problems with player stats. Nothing like making learning fun! So proud to be #VegasBorn . #KnightUp pic.twitter.com/THmuoFZxQv
