Westborough – Several months ago, the students at the Annie E. Fales Elementary School took on a challenge presented to them by their principal MaryAnn Stannard and their teachers – brainstorm ideas on what the school’s new mascot should be.

Those ideas were then submitted to artist Virginia Orlando, a Westborough resident who also is the niece of Fales teacher Jean Katralis. After assessing all of the submissions, she then created a charming drawing of a hedgehodge, which is appropriately named, “Annie.”  (The school was named for the late Annie E. Fales, a longtime Westborough school teacher and resident, who passed away in 1972 at age 104.)

The design also incorporates the school’s motto, “Fales Cares.” The new logo was unveiled at the school’s monthly assembly April 26 to rousing cheers.

“It was so much fun to do, I was happy to be a part of it,” Orlando said. “The kids had a lot of ideas – there was a lot of creativity!”

Orlando is also the owner of Seed to Stem, a gift and botanical shop located at 174 Shrewsbury St., Worcester.
