Students teachers and administrators at schools across the Houston area didn’t let class work keep them from celebrating the first day of the World Series.
For many kids, their school outfits of choice were blue and orange.
At Pasadena Independent School District, administrators were decked out in Astros gear, and showing strong team spirit.
“Let’s go Astros! Let’s go Astros! Let’s go Astros!” came the cheers of several dozen administrators when the FOX 26 crew arrived at the administration building in Pasadena.
“I had to do the hair, and I had to put a little sparkle in it just to get the fever going," said Karen Clayton, an administrator who flaunted orange highlights in her hair. "I love my Astros; it’s so exciting!”
The administration leadership came up with the idea to wear team colors on Tuesday in celebration of the Astros' first trip to the World Series since 2005.
“We wanted to 'orange out' the administration building and Pasadena ISD, so across our district and here at the administration building we asked everybody to wear their Astros attire,” Troy McCarley with Pasadena ISD.
Across the area at the Grace School in Houston, the kids have no shortage of confidence in their team.
"I'm voting for the Astros," said one first grade girl wearing an Astros shirt and orange ribbons in her pigtails. “My daddy’s really excited. He has a lot of Astros shirts.”
She and her classmates were matching in orange and blue.
Teachers at Grace School say the head of school asked everyone to wear Astros gear if the team made it to the World Series. It was a dress code that was not hard to enforce.
