On Wednesday, November 20, Fredbird along with reporter, Mike Claiborne from the St. Louis Cardinals came to speak to all of the students at Ste. Genevieve Elementary and the sixth graders from Ste. Genevieve Middle School. The message was three fold. They emphasized “Stay in School”, “Don’t do Drugs”, and “Participate in Sports”, along with a lot of good hearted fun provided by Fredbird and Mike Claiborne. The hallways in the elementary school were covered in Cardinal Red and memorabilia. The program was held in the Middle School gym which was also decorated in many layers of Cardinal souvenirs.
The elementary students were asked to write an essay about the Doin' It Right message for the Cardinals. Winners were Luke Basler, and Izzy Basler, Layne Roderique, Evan Kemper, Penny Yang, Miranda Ponder. Everyone enjoyed the assembly and the message they delivered. Ste.
