Holden Elementary School Celebrates Superbowl
In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a pretty big football game going on this weekend. It involves two teams deeply loved by Mainers. On Friday, TV 5 went to Holden Elementary School where team spirit is spiraling out of control. From the outside everything looks normal, but inside Holden Elementary School it’s a whole different ball game. ” Kids have to have fun at school and be engaged in their learning to really get the most benefit out of their education,” said David Anderson, principal of the school. You could say Anderson is the Bill Belichick or Tom Coughlin of the school. He’s encouraged his students and staff to put on their game faces and show their team spirit. Sure, even friends won’t see eye to eye. ” Giants,” exclaimed Aiden Boudreau, a 2nd grader at the school.” Patriots,” chimed in classmate Kate Smith. The good news for Smith though, even a Giants fan can appreciate Tom Brady.’ He’s the worlds greatest quarter back for you,” said Boudreau. Boudreau is quick to point out, it’s the G-Men he’s rooting for. ” Victor Cruz doing his touchdown dance,” said Boudreau, although he declined to show us the moves. Whether they’re cheering for Brady or Manning, the game plan all along has been to learn a lesson.” We’ve got a lot of Pats fans, some Giants fans, but ya know what boys and girls, we’re gonna be good sports about it. At the end of the day it’s two teams going at it. We can cheer for whoever but we’re respectful of the other team as well,” said Anderson. No matter who wins on the field, Spirit Day scored big at Holden Elementary.
