Leading up to Esperanza High’s “Elementary School Night,” students from ASB, Air Force JROTC, dance, cheer, and football visited their six feeder schools in order to excite students about the Aztecs’ second annual event.
During lunch, students at Glenview, Glenknoll, Woodsboro, Fairmont, Travis Ranch, and Linda Vista elementary schools had their choice of competing in a football throw, learning a dance, or practicing a cheer with the Aztecs. A winner of the football throw was determined in each grade level. Then, all of the elementary school students were personally invited to the Esperanza varsity football game on Friday, September 13 versus Loara High School in Nathan Shapell Memorial Stadium.
At the game, elementary school students received free admission and halftime field access, as well as an Aztec PRIDE inspired face painting and t-shirt. In front of a full house, the young football throw winners from each school competed during halftime. Following the fun and friendly competition, contest winners received a signed football from the varsity team. The young students were also able to perform a dance with the school’s dance team and cheerleaders during half time.
“The joy on the faces of the elementary kids and also the Esperanza students is hard to explain,” shared Activities Director, Meghann Lukach. “It was a great community event where AZTEC PRIDE was truly on display.”
To end another successful Elementary School Night, the Aztecs won the football game 42-10. Great job all around, EHS!
