Celebrating Texas Independence

On this day in history in 1836, the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed.

Today, Lubbock Cooper North students celebrated Texas Independence Day. The fourth graders have been studying Texas history and in celebration they made their own Texas flags and booklets full of Texas history. The students also entertained their parents and the rest of the school with songs native to the Lone Star state.

"We've been learning about where they fought at the Alamo and who fought at the Alamo," said 4th grader Taylor Sharp.

"Tell me what the state bird is? Mockingbird. What's the state tree? Pecan tree. State flower? Bluebonnet. Do you know the state song? Texas Our Texas. Do you know what the State stone is? Blue Topaz," answered BettyJo Privette, another 4th grader.

The whole school was in the Texas spirit today, for lunch they served 'Texas BBQ on a Bun' with 'Best in the West Beans' and 'Cow Patty Cookies'.
