The Buffalo Bandits visited the students of Fletcher School to bring
along with them important messages of friendship, teamwork, and anti-bullying.
Students were warmly greeted with high fives from “Rax”, the friendly
raccoon who is the official mascot for the Buffalo Bandits. In addition to an appearance from Rax, Mark Steenhuis
was in the house alongside players, Dhane Smith and Mitch Jones.
Dhane Smith spoke to students about the importance of being an
upstanding person alongside doing the “right thing” when it comes to not being
a bully. Students were energetic over
the Bandits and their message and got into the assembly themselves with several
shout-outs as well as volunteering on stage.
The school visit of the Buffalo Bandits was highly anticipated and eagerly
awaited by many of the students who dressed in the Bandits colors of black and orange
that day along with wearing other Bandits themed clothing.
Fletcher School is much honored
to host their visit alongside teaching students the values of teamwork, spirit,
