The students in Carla Winslow's fourth grade bilingual classes at Arlington schools' Crouch Elementary probably already had lots of reasons to like teacher Carla Winslow, but she gave them a really, really big one last weekend. Winslow won 60 tickets to the Dallas Cowboys Oct. 26 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a contest sponsored by the Movin' 107.5 radio station and Albertsons.
The children got a visit in their classroom from the Cowboys' mascot, Rowdy, last week. And then, on Sunday, 47 children and parents and 13 staff boarded a chartered bus to Irving to watch the Cowboys win. The group even got free food, tee shirts, foam fingers and pom-poms to help them get revved up for the game. (That's Winslow and a few of her students in the picture.)
Their seats were near the tunnel. So, players were walking by throwing the lucky students some souvenirs on their way off the field, Winslow said.
"The kids came to school on Monday wearing these huge gloves on their hands from the Dallas Cowboys players," she said. "It was a blast. we couldn’t have asked for better seats. It was great.”
