Thank you and information from Boosters

stj_lions_circleIt is hard to believe that it is already time to start thinking about the next school year!  St. John’s Booster Program had a very successful 2013-14 thanks in large part to all of the parent volunteers who support our efforts!

Some of the things Boosters was able to provide included Breakfast for ISST Athletes, Senior Shirts, Water for Various Tournaments, New Furniture in the Sports Foyer and New Equipment for various sports teams.

Looking ahead to the 2014-15 school year, we need volunteers for the Daily Concession Stand, located in the Sports Foyer.  We had several wonderful volunteers this past year, but many of them have graduated their seniors or are moving to another country.  Daily Concessions offers a great opportunity for parents to interact with other parents of student athletes as well as serve some very cute elementary-age students delicious popcorn or cookies!  We need teams of 4 volunteers for each daily shift.  Teams will be able to coordinate their own working schedule once the school year begins.  Recruit your friends and let us know the day of the week you would like to volunteer!  If you cannot commit to each week, we also need a pool of reserve volunteers and can place you on that list.

Concession Shifts for tournaments and game days will be coordinated using www.signupgenius.com.  The fall sports schedule is available on-line and sign-ups will be available by August 1 for the fall season.  Times will be approximate until I receive the final schedule from the Athletic Department.  Please remember that each athlete’s family is expected to volunteer for at least 3 events in the school year.  We encourage you to work during your “off season” so that you can enjoy your student athlete’s games!

St. John’s Boosters will hold its first meeting on September 15 at 13:30 in the Sports Foyer.  We welcome all parents to attend!!  More information about the agenda will be posted when school resumes.

We are still searching for an individual to serve as St. John’s Booster Program President.  If you are interested or have questions, please contact Janna Davis at stjohnsconcessions@gmail.com.
