Students at a Pueblo elementary school catch Broncos fever

A Pueblo elementary school catches Broncos fever

PUEBLO, Colo. - Broncos fever is spreading and students, along with staff, at a Pueblo elementary school have it bad.

Beulah Heights Elementary School is Panther Nation, but that's until the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl.

"My media specialist was carrying every Panther that she could find. She threw them down in the conference room and said ‘I can't have these in the media center right now,'" Principal Jonathan Dehn said.

That's when students and staff united in orange and even held an assembly.

The fifth-graders got into the assembly so much, they created their own chant for the occasion.

"It's one of hardest chants we done. It took a lot of preparation even though we only had one day," student Zak Martinez said.

Dehn also read a proclamation for the day. He declared Beulah Heights to be the Broncos until after the Super Bowl.

The spirit didn't end at the assembly. The school was covered in everything Broncos, from the jerseys, to artwork and a team inflatable.

"I'm excited because I really love the Broncos. I have been wanting an assembly like this and never had a principal like this," student Jayla Duran said.

Dehn said he will be joining Broncos Country on Sunday to watch the Super Bowl in Santa Clara.
