27th Annual Boone Trail Days
 
What was life like in the 1800’s when St. Charles County was the frontier? Students at Boone Trail Elementary found out as classroom lessons came to life and students and staff celebrated the 27th annual “Boone Trail Days” on October 12th and 13th. Students took part in hands-on activities like making rope, churning butter, and spinning wool. They also enjoyed demonstrations on blacksmithing and frontier life. “I love Boone Trail Days! I have been doing it since kindergarten and have learned so much about pioneering,” said sixth grader Danny Wilson. “My favorite part is the pioneer stew.”
