The Panthers of Escuela Valdez, a dual language school in Denver, officially changed their name from the Panthers to the Broncos as Denver takes on the Carolina Panthers on Super Bowl Sunday. 

The school, located at 29th Avenue -- one mile from Mile High Stadium -- is also allowing students to break from the uniform dress code so students can show their Broncos Pride. 

But the idea came from a 4th grader at the school, and as soon as the Broncos heard what was happening, they sent out pomp pomps and banners to help them get into the Broncos Spirit.
