Liberty, Justice, and Freedom - Parsley's Patriot Kids


Parsley's mascots are the Patriot Kids: Liberty, Justice and Freedom. They were created by Parsley's Technology Assistant/Webmaster, Mrs. Rizzo, using KidPix software during the 2003 school year.


Mr. Z presenting awardOnce they were created, a school-wide contest was held to name the Patriot Kids.  First grader, Jake Wade, submitted the winning entry.  Our principal, Mr. Zentmeyer, presented Jake a certificate of appreciation during a special segment of 'Parsley Today'.

Patriot KidsThe Patriot Kids look essentially the same today, but had a minor make-over, using Adobe Photoshop Elements, a couple years later.

Liberty, Justice, and Freedom appear on many of our school items including t-shirts, the Parsley folder, and car magnets. They have appeared on the cover of our yearbooks, school directory, and cookbook.

To help our students learn more about surfing our website and about sending an email, each month a Patriot Kid 'hides' on our website. Students are challenged to find the hidden patriot and then email the URL of the page he/she was hiding on in an email to Parsley. One student winner is drawn from correct entries received each month. Read more about this contest and the rules on our "Where's the Patriot?" Contest page.

Beginning with the 2006 school year, the Patriot Kids began traveling with Parsley students. They take vacations with our students visiting sites in our city, our state, other states, and even other countries. They may even spend time with parents, family members and friends and then share with us what they learned.  Stories and photos are emailed to us and then are posted on our Patriot Kids blog. Visit the Vacationing with the Patriot Kids page to learn more.
