Floral Park Teachers Take On Harlem Wizards

Hilarious hijinks and hoops were happening at the Floral Park Memorial gym on Oct. 12 as the world-famous Harlem Wizards took on the fast and furious Floral Park Memorial teachers.

This fun-filled, high flying and interactive community event featured a team of teachers and principals from John Lewis Childs School, Floral Park-Bellerose School and Floral Park Memorial schools, who packed the bleachers of the gym. Floral Park Memorial senior Elizabeth Calandra opened the night with a beautiful rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the Floral Park Titanettes cheered their hearts out at intermission. The students cheered on their teachers with homemade signs in hopes they could score more baskets against the silly antics of the Wizards team.

Unfortunately, the home team did not win but a memorable night was had by all. This fun family event was brought to the community through the PTAs of John Lewis Child and Floral Park-Bellerose schools and the Floral Park Memorial’s Athletic Booster Club.
