Astatula Elementary kicks off Socktober with surprise corn dog day!

.    .    .

Astatula Elementary School students enjoyed a surprise corn dog day last week in partnership with the Sonic Drive-In restaurant in Eustis, to kick off the school's drive to collect socks for the homeless. The idea came from the Kid President video, "The 20 Things We Should Say More Often." Number 18 is, "Here's a surprise corn dog I bought you because you're my friend." Last year, students collected more than 600 pairs of socks in a project inspired by Kid President's "Socktober" videos. This year, they are hoping to collect even more!
