Booster club plays a vital role
The Booster Club plays a vital role in assisting the school district’s athletic department by providing financial support to student-athletes and athletic programs. Each year, the club raises money to support, promote and celebrate the accomplishments of all district athletes. In past years, the club has helped purchase non-budgeted items, such as uniforms, awards for sports banquets, pep rallies, and scholarships and flowers for graduates.
Concussion information for parents
A concussion is a reaction by the brain to a jolt or force
that can be transmitted to the head by an impact or blow occurring anywhere on
the body. Essentially a concussion results from the brain moving back and forth
or twisting rapidly inside the skull.
