Parent Booster Club 2022-2023
AACT’s Parent Booster Club's purpose is to support the academic and career tech student organizations and clubs. Joining will put parents in the know for all AACT activities and events sponsored by our volunteer parent boosters. The minimum cost to join is only $20/year per family, but please donate more via the form if you are able and willing. All donations up to $600 will get an additional tax deduction this year as well!
Also, during the once a month meetings (2nd Wednesday of every month at 5:30 PM), volunteers attend to discuss their ideas and solutions with school staff, and to learn more about AACT’s community and activities. We would really love to see you there and/or to have you support with the many opportunities for parents! ALL parents, students, teachers and staff are welcome to attend meetings.
Why join or support Boosters???
Over the last 2 school years (2019-2021), AACT Boosters supported some of these areas to help our students:
- awarded 13 well deserving seniors with $1,000 scholarships each,
- helped purchase 10 jackets for FCCLA competition,
- helped purchase 10 graphing calculators to support ACT Testing,
- Performed ~300 mock job interview/feedback sessions for our Junior students,
- Funded Trailblazer of the week,
- For the virtual 2021 auction, we raised nearly ~10K for our students! We’d like to double that in 2021!
- In addition, Boosters helped staff and some financial support for Teacher Appreciation (4 meals provided in 2020-2021), dance chaperones, graduation, Senior Capstone interviews, and much more!
Drop us a note to offer ideas/suggestions via the Booster Club mailbox located right by the front office (next to the Boosters Board). ALSO, any Membership form/payments can be dropped off there as well!
NOTE: Renewal to Boosters is every year - so to remain as an awesome supporter of AACT Parent Boosters supporting our students, please follow the instructions of the previous email.
