What is the Booster Club?
To All Students, Parents, Teachers and Staff of Grand Ridge Grade School:
A lot has happened in the last month with the Grand Ridge Grade School Booster Club! We have appointed an entirely new board. We now have a 5-person board that will oversee the Booster Club. A small group of dedicated parents are attending the meetings to help us get going in the right direction. By-Laws are being created (by which we will function as a group), a policy book to explain everyday activities, and a budget. We also have regularly scheduled monthly meetings to conduct our business.
The Booster Club holds many responsibilities in this school organization. We are the support group for all extra-curricular activities within the school. Most parents think of a Booster Club as a sports club. While we do support the sports programs, we are also dedicated to Band, Choir, and the Academic Team. So, your child does not have to play sports to be supported by the Booster Club.
So, what's in the works right now? We are looking at ways to boost school spirit with a few different ideas. School spirit in the lobby is a high priority, with some new ideas for the next year's sports programs. We are setting goals and making a wish list for the future of the Booster Club. We are in need of some new fundraising ideas, in hopes to get away from selling candy bars. And, we are looking for new parents to join and get involved with Booster Club.
What does that mean for you? That could just mean being a voice at the meeting, to bring new ideas to the Club, or have ways to update established functions. If you have any of this, we are looking for you. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in the Teacher's Lounge. Come see what happens at the meetings and bring some new ideas!
We are also the club behind Spirit Wear. At this time, we are in the process of clearing out old inventory and offering a whole new selection of spirit wear items. So, be on the look out for these at sporting events and many school functions.
If you have any questions, concerns, or are interested in getting involved in the Booster Club, you can either just show up at the meeting or give me a call. It is our goal to continue providing top notch support to all extra-curricular activities offered at Grand Ridge Grade School. My number is 815-712-0134.
