Dear 5th and 6th Grade Moms:

We are very excited about the great response we have received regarding the Building Boys, Making Men program. We have had outstanding participation in recent meetings with 5th and 6th grade dads and mentors and have also received feedback from families that it would be beneficial to give moms the same information given to dads. In response, we are offering this optional meeting for moms who want a more comprehensive understanding of the program, what the boys will be doing, and the basic calendar of topics the boys will cover.

We will hold the meeting twice on September 26th with two time options: 7:15am and 12:00pm. Please register before September 24th to let us know which session you will attend. We will provide Chick-fil-A breakfast for the morning session and salads and sandwiches for lunch. There is no charge for this event.

If you have questions about participation or want to attend but are unable to during these times, please call or email me. Our goal is for every family to be fully prepared to guide their son.

Howard Graham
Chaplain and Executive Director of Building Boys, Making Men

REMINDER:
Dear Parents and Sixth Graders, Departure time for the trip will this FRIDAY, September 21st at 8:45am. All fathers should arrive by 7:45am to put their luggage and lunches on the buses near the football field. Boys and fathers should both bring a sack lunch (drinks will be provided). Fathers will then go to the EC Commons where coffee and breakfast will be provided. There will be a brief meeting at 8:15am in the EC Commons. Boys are to report to school at the regular time and go to their homerooms.

Because it is a group trip, please do not plan or request individual excursions.

The business office will bill you $875.00 for the total cost of the trip. This will include two nights at the hotel, transportation to and from St. Louis and transportation to all events. It also includes tickets for the baseball game, Six Flags, Rec-Plex, the St. Louis Arch, and meals at the hotel. Additional money will be needed for food at the ball park, lunch on Saturday at Six Flags, lunch on Sunday at the St. Louis Zoo, and for any souvenirs or snacks you may want to buy during the trip.

The dress code for the boys will be appropriate school clothes. Boys will not need a coat and tie. Hats are permissible outside only. Please bring a swimsuit for the pool if you intend to swim. You may want to bring an umbrella or rain gear because most events go on as scheduled. We have already taken care of all reservations and tickets. We have also attached an itinerary and a bus list. I am looking forward to a great trip with the boys and fathers.

Sincerely,

Dennis Smith
Director of Athletics and Operations
