Best of Booster: A Billboard and a Donkey—Two Boosterthon Schools Shock Us With Their Ingenuity
It’s been two months since Boosterthon kicked off another great school year, and while we’ve seen some of the most creative ways to display our program in years, two schools blew us away with their enthusiasm and promotion of our program.
It’s a normal day in Little Rock, AR, well not too normal, the Boosterthon Fun Run is serving Roberts Elementary, the first Arkansas school to host our program. One of our team members is driving through one of the busiest intersections in the city, casually gazes up at a red, white, and blue billboard and sees this:
What a surprise!
We’ve had banners, bulletin boards, and marquees made, but nothing this big. It’s the single greatest Boosterthon promotion to date.
Fast forward to the great state of Texas. It’s the day of the Boosterthon Fun Run event at University Park Elementary in Dallas, TX. The Boosterthon team asks the students and parents to welcome their awesome principal onto the Boosterthon Speedway. As the crowd turns to greet their principal they see their principal decked out in Epic Adventure attire and riding a donkey!
We’ve had principals don all kinds of wacky costumes for the Boosterthon Fun Run, we even had principals ride motorcycles, but never a donkey. In true Epic Adventure fashion, University Park’s leader made our theme that much more real to her students, enhancing the whole experience.
There’s been a lot of firsts this year, and we can’t wait to see what else happens from now through May. Thanks to all of our schools for letting us be a part of the experience.
