Current Celtic Jared Sullinger and former Celtics Keyon Dooling and Dana Barros will host a Stay in School assembly at the Boston Teachers Union K-8 School in Jamaica Plain from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The assembly will focus on PRIDE, an acronym that stands for Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Decisions, Education. The players will urge the students to take pride in their school work.

The players also will conduct a mini-clinic for the standout students in the school's gym.

The school will also receive tickets for a Celtics game.
