WOLFPUPS AT THE CARDINALS GAME

WE'VE EXTENDED TICKET SALES. We have about 70 tickets left to sell!!

Our Boone Trail Singers will be performing at the Cardinals game on Saturday, June 2. Our Cardinals will be hosting the Pirates; game time is 1:15 pm. Embroidered Jersey giveaway day (first 30,000 fans 16 years and older). Our singers will be performing 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' for the 7th inning stretch. Choir members had the opportunity to purchase tickets first, and now we are opening the invitation to the entire Boone Trail Wolfpup family, until they run out. We have 70 tickets left. Tickets are sold on a first-come-first-served basis, and there is no limit to the number of tickets you may purchase. We've filled Section 363, and we cannot return the tickets for Section 361, so we have plenty of tickets available for ANYONE to purchase. Reach out to friends and family. Great for a Mother's Day gift, or even an early Father's Day gift.


This year we will be sitting in the Left Field Pavillion, Sections 363 and 361. Tickets are $20 each, which is a bargain! Tickets are on sale in the office, see Mrs. Zytko. Cash, or checks made out to BTE are acceptable.

And, just a reminder, no student can simply hop on another bus to go home with a friend. Busses have student assignments and seating charts, and any changes to bus assisgnments must be approved by our transportation department, and they will notify the driver.

FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE MONTH

This story was sent to us by a parent of one of these students. It is a very inspirational story about a couple of Wolf Pups doing a kind deed, and we thought it would be nice to share with our Wolf Pup Nation.


Evey and her best friend Brookelyn have been inspired by Boone Trail’s initiative his year to raising money for 'Kids With Cancer' to an extent they have taken it a step further to raise money on their own.


On Saturday, Evey and her best friend Brookelyn organized a lemonade stand in their neighborhood to help to continue to raise funds. They raised $61 in three hours! They were visited by a few Wentzville police officers who helped support their cause and even posted it on their Facebook page to help spread the word. Below is that photo.


Thanks to Boone Trail for inspiring these girls to go above and beyond to help others. One of my many goals for Evey is for her to develop a sense of compassion for helping and serving others. I am very proud to say these girls came up with this idea themselves, made their sign, counted out the cups, served the lemonade, knocked on their neighbor’s doors and learned how to count money and make change. Saturday wasn’t a warm day to serve lemonade but these girls weren’t discouraged, and their strong determination led to people coming and buying cold lemonade for $1 to support their fundraiser.

Thanks so much for your positive influence this year in your students. It is definitely making an impact, especially on Evey.
