Groups of Bulldogs welcome students at each of the elementary schools on Fridays. The Bulldog football players and Ladydog volleyball players welcome students at the front entrances with warm, “good mornings” and enthusiastic high fives and fist bumps. Huge smiles abound from the young students when the Bulldogs and Ladydogs extend their hands in greeting. The mood is electric when the athletes perform these community outreach activities. The players raise the spirit around Artesia just as the downtown orange flags raise Artesia’s hometown pride.
