Stonewall Flanders students learn about mascot

Stonewall Flanders Elementary students soared with pride as they learned all about falcons and other winged animals through a special birds of prey demonstration on their first day back from winter break.

According to Stonewall Flanders Principal Ms. Cynthia Perez, the presentation was part of a big push to create awareness about the school’s vision statement: Forever Aspiring Leaders Committed On Never Settling.

The new vision statement was implemented this school year to foster school pride.

“When I was talking to the students about our vision statement, I realized that a lot of them didn’t really know what a falcon was, so this is just another way for them to learn,” Perez said.

Students in third through fifth grade will take the information they learned and will use it to create a yearbook cover. Each student will submit a cover design and will have the opportunity to have their art selected.

The birds were brought in by the nonprofit organization Last Chance Forever which is dedicated to the rehabilitation of sick, injured and orphaned birds of prey. In addition to properly caring for the bird, Last Chance Forever has designed an educational program for children.

Students could hardly contain their excitement as they saw falcons, hawks, owls, vultures and eagles spread their wings.
