Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am honored to be the new president of the Booster Club and look forward to working with the board this year.
You may be wondering: “What does the Booster Club do?” The Booster Club raises funds and supports all school-sponsored extracurricular activities – academics, athletics, and the performing arts. These funds are disbursed to requesting student organizations three time per year.
You may also be wondering: “How does the Booster Club raise the funds?” We have five main fundraisers for the year: our Membership Drive, Varsity Letter Jacket sale, Silent Auction (in October), Mulch Sale (in April), and selling concessions at the various athletic events throughout the year.
Now, I hope you’re wondering: “How can I get involved?” So glad you asked! First, JOIN the Booster Club! Next, sign up to volunteer at a sporting event (or two . . . or more!) this year.
Other ways to get involved:
- Sign up to receive Booster Club emails
- Join the Silent Auction procurement committee . . . or donate an item or two!
- Attend the auction on October 27! Check out the Save the Date
- Attend Booster Club meetings
- Plan to be a volunteer driver for the Mulch Sale on April 1st . . . and to buy mulch, too!
We are looking forward to having you join us in supporting our students! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any comments or questions throughout the year.
Best wishes –
President, NWHS Booster Club
Mulch deliveries will take place on Saturday, April 9th between 8am and 10pm.
If you ordered mulch to be picked up at Northwest High School, it can be picked up on Saturday, April 9th by noon.
A limited number of bags will be available on a “first come first serve”, basis, and will be located in the lower lot.
If you ordered mulch spreading, the football team will work to spread as much mulch as they can on Sunday, April 10th. You will be contacted via a phone call or email. Rain date is Saturday April 16th.
Thank you for your mulch orders! Any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I cannot thank you guys enough!! You are so wonderful to NW athletics and I appreciate all your time and effort!! The money donated by boosters goes to new wrestling mat, softball fence, basketball backboard, uniforms for basketball programs, football shoulder pads and helmets, and new handball goals. It will also help pay for the officials, busses, entry fees, athletic equipment, helmet reconditioning fees, etc. We also have very large items that are yearly expenses: stadium and baseball field expenses, overtime for custodial use and security, coaching uniforms, and awards. Thank you again!

Thank you to all of you who helped with our wonderful auction! The items and the turnout were incredible and so much more than expected!
And a sincere thank you to our donors!!
Our Booster Club is school-wide, so we support many of our extracurricular activities! In the last couple of years, the Booster Club supported Athletics, Band, Instrumental Music, Math Honors Society, the E.D. Cluster Program, Warm-Up America, the Jagwire, Drama, the Chess Club, the After Prom Event, the Robotics Club, and more.
Join today and help us fund the many needs of our extracurricular athletics & academics. Without the Booster Club’s help, many important needs just won’t get fulfilled.
