(STANTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL -- Jan. 9, 2020) — The students at Stanton Elementary School returned to classes yesterday after the end of the winter break, and they got a special treat as they walked in. 

Waiting for them were a group of American heroes: members of the U.S. Army who were there to give them books, orange juice and encouraging words to help them start the second half of the school year. 

The soldiers, all wearing their fatigues, even brought another superhero friend. Batman was there to high-five kids and wish them luck in the spring semester. 

EPISD students returned to school on Wednesday after a much-deserved winter break.
