Funding

Traditionally, the Boosters fund items that enhance the curriculum, facilitate the teaching or learning process, benefit both current and future students, foster school spirit and embrace a large number of students. The attached funding request form requires the department head’s signature and two supplier sources (if possible).

Once completed, place the form in the Booster mailbox located in the front office. Our monthly board meetings are usually held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. This changes occasionally so please check the master calendar. Please plan to attend the Board meeting if you are submitting a request greater than $500.
