Statue of Liberty visits elementary
Lady Liberty enlightened the students by sharing interesting facts about the statue and asking trivia questions. The students were awarded with their own Statue of Liberty hats in exchange for correct answers.
Among the questions asked were: Why does the Statue appear green; who did the sculptor use as a model for the statue’s face; and why does the statue often get struck by lightning?
The excited students were surprisingly knowledgeable about the statue’s history and even knew some facts that Ms. Liberty herself was unaware of.
Box Tops VIP’s are chosen monthly in a drawing. Students are entered into the drawing by bringing in at least ten Box Tops per month. Each Pleasanton Elementary classroom has a designated bucket where students can turn in Box Tops at any time.
Through the Box Tops program, the school is getting closer to raising its goal of $4,000 for a new outdoor water fountain. Contact Kittie Aldakkour at 830-569-3876 for more information.
