Texas Kindergarteners Send Birthday Cards to Elvis

Some of Elvis' youngest fans sent him hand-drawn, colorful cards for his 80th birthday.

Three kindergarten classes at The Magellan International School in Austin, Texas, sent birthday cards to Graceland after their teacher, Missy Fleshman, taught them about Elvis and how he changed the world.

"My students were so inspired, they asked if they could make him cards for his 80th birthday," Missy said. "Many of the students wanted Elvis (and his family) to know how thankful they were that he changed the world by being a risk-taker in music and dance. Others wanted to tell him how much they love dancing to his music. ... (These cards) were made out of love."

Check out these creative cards in the photo gallery, as well as photos of the classes.
