Rocket Power, with Shelby County Public Schools, hosted full daycare for all six elementary schools on Presidents Day. Using the book, Pancakes! Pancakes! by Eric Carle as a theme, the students made pancakes and then had a nutritional challenge and taste test between sugar-free pancake syrup and "lite" pancake syrup. Chef Tina Hurt (right) serves Nichole Diaz, who attends Panther Power. Director Joy Royalty said, "The conclusion was that not only did it have fewer calories, but the sugar-free actually tastes better!" The students watched a book/video on So You Want to be President? and read various books on different presidents then reported back to the whole group fun facts about them.
