Prescriptions of Thanks

Academy High School Pharmacy Tech students participated in a multidimensional project where they wrote “prescriptions of thanks” to the AHS staff. The students learned to read, interpret, write, and dispense prescriptions. Staff members then picked up the bags of sweet treats, which allowed students to practice their customer service skills. It was the perfect project to show appreciation and create a learning experience that students and faculty enjoyed.

BISD offers ‘family pass’ for sports events

KAREN RUDOLPH | BELTON ISD

There’s a new — and more economical — way for fans of Belton ISD athletic teams to attend the district’s high school and middle school sporting events.

The district is offering a Family Pass for $70, which is good for general admission to any Belton ISD athletic event except for varsity football and post-season games. The pass is valid for the cardholder and his or her immediate family during the 2022-2023 school year.

“The Family Pass is a great deal for families who have multiple students participating in several sports,” Ty Pattrick, assistant athletic director, said. “They can attend all the games without worrying about purchasing individual tickets or the extra cost of tickets for siblings.”

Single tickets range from $2-4 per person, per event, Pattrick said. 

“Part of the experience for our athletes is having spectators cheering them on,” Patrick said. “We want to make it as easy as possible for fans to attend, and hopefully a Family Pass does that for some.”

The Family Pass is available to buy at the BISD Athletic Complex (624 Tiger Drive in Belton) or at the Administration Building (400 N. Wall Street in Belton) during regular business hours — Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., or Fridays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

At the Administration Building, fans can also now purchase single tickets to high school games with cash. Cash is not accepted at the gates of high school games.

“Some people prefer using cash, so we wanted to give them an option,” Pattrick said. “The cash tickets for sale at the Administration Building are general admission and can be used at any game — high school or middle school.”

Fans can also still purchase tickets online at https://beltontigerathletics.com/ or https://lbhsbroncos.com.
