Sparta Education Foundation Hosts A Night With The New Jersey Devils
The Sparta Education Foundation hosted A Night With the New Jersey Devils on Friday, March 25 as the Devils faced off against the Washington Capitals at The Prudential Center in Newark. A portion of each ticket sold went to support the Sparta Education Foundation.
There were a total of 93 attendees who received a welcome message on the scoreboard, a NJ Devils hat and a group photo on the ice following the game. "It was an awesome time!" said Rocco Biondo. His sister Bella agreed, adding "I loved it, going on the ice was so cool!"

Recently-funded grants include a coral reef aquarium project, funding for the Robotics Program and 12 Nikon cameras for Sparta High School; electric instruments, a VariQuest poster maker, BrightLink projectors and document cameras for Sparta Middle School; a Yamaha Clavinova electric piano and document cameras for Mohawk Avenue School; and 25 iPads and document cameras for Alpine School.
