ACGC elementary students spend the day at what will become their new school


ATWATER -- The elementary students from Cosmos may have been just a little timid when they got off the bus Tuesday morning in Atwater.

But when they saw the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City School District's mascot, they smiled and high-fived the falcon named Soar.

When the 65 Cosmos students walked into the gym, they were greeted with applause from the 226 Atwater students.

Within seconds, all 291 were sitting together and spontaneously chanting A-C-G-C.
