Today I have a couple of questions for you:
Is there any booster club that you know or are part of?
I just became one of the members of the Booster Club at Diego school, which is a public school in our area. As any booster club, the main idea is to raise money for the school, which translates in a better education for our kids. I learned that this group started up last year only, so it needs lots of growing in all directions, from parent involvement to strategies to raise money efficiently.
Diego school is nice and small and the parents are great. I have been getting to know some of them little by little. But the thing is that they're not strongly united. They're great individually but we're missing that sense of group that is the key for the success in any school.
My second question for you is:
Would you share some ideas with me?
Maybe you have some experience from having done this before, from having being part of a booster club. Right now I think that the main thing is to attract parents to the club. I am thinking about how to approach them but I still need to find the best way to do it.
There is already a small group of parents that are willing to put their energy and creativity into the club, but we need to come out with great ideas for raising money. Something great is the club is in the process of becoming a non profit organization, that will help a lot legally. Also, One of the parents is going to invite 2 ladies from another successful booster club to share their secrets with us. Our next meeting will take place on Nov. 3rd. I'm trying to gather some information and feedback from other parents to bring to the meeting.
I would love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful Friday and a happy weekend!
