Thursday, March 8, the Pleasanton Eagle mascot soared into the Pleasanton Elementary School’s cafeteria to the delight of the Box Top VIPs.

A symbol of national pride, the American Bald Eagle is also a symbol of Pleasanton Eagle Pride. Our local eagle is known as “Big E” and is a popular figure in Pleasanton sports.

There were no fowl calls as “Big E” played games and posed for pictures with his adoring fans. “Big E” gets his personality and positive attitude from the Pleasanton High School student enduring the heat and itchiness of the costume. We will honor the wishes of “Big E” to remain anonymous. This intelligent, well-mannered, caring indi- vidual is a positive role model and testament to the young adults attending Pleasanton High School.

Any student bringing in a minimum of 10 Box Tops/Labels for Education is entered into a class drawing. One VIP from each class per month holds the title. On Friday, the VIPs and their guests are treated to ice cream from the cafeteria, purchased through generous donations.
