The boys and girls had a field trip yesterday to The Huntmans Cancer Center. There they learned about different treatments for cancer and were given a tour of the facility. It seems as is if everyone knows someone who has had a bout with cancer. It was humbling to be there.
The next stop was to the Broadway Entertainment Art University. They toured different departments such as the music dept, graphic designs, scenery, comic strips, art etc. It gave a very professional look at the details involved with the art industry and behind the scenes. The students really enjoyed this one.

Today the boys participating in the baseball class went to a local elementary school to work with a first grade class. When we arrived the class was so excited to have them there. Mrs. Heath had planned for our students to help the kids make a Mother’s Day card and write things down in the card that were special to them about their mom. It was fun to watch all of our students gather around and work with the students and help them do their projects and be excited about doing it.
Our boys also got to read with her students and spend some one on one time with them. Trevor B and Collin B read to the class. Collin read 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed and Bucky read about Bears in Alaska. They students were engaged the whole time and our boys made it fun for them to participate and ask questions.
At the end of our visit the boys went outside to recess with them and played tag, played on the teeter totter, played 4 square and basketball.

American Ride host Stan Ellsworth came today for a school assembly. He talked about champions and challenged our students to take advantage of the opportunity they have to make changes in their lives while they’re here. He talked about some historical events that shaped our country and the heroes that stood up for their beliefs and encouraged our youth to get involved and to make a difference. It was a great message, thanks Stan!
