Join Your Springfield High School Booster Club

The Booster Club is dedicated to supporting and promoting student interest and service clubs, art and music organizations, athletic teams and other extracurricular activities at Springfield High School through volunteerism and financial support. Joining the Booster Club and volunteering at school events are great ways to support our students, meet other parents, and get involved in the SHS community.

Just last year alone, the Booster Club raised nearly $100,000 to help fund our student’s extracurricular activities, teams and organizations. We are able to support our students through booster club membership and generous donations from parents, alums, grandparents and friends of SHS.

There is clear evidence that students who are involved in extracurricular activities enjoy their high school experience more, are better prepared to meet the challenges of adult life and increase their chances for scholarships and other college successes. Extracurricular activities also build memories and friendships that last a lifetime.

Our goal is to ensure SHS has a variety of activities available to students that will spark their passions and enhance their skills. WE NEED YOU!!! Booster membership options are available with levels to accommodate every family. We also encourage you to volunteer at athletic and other events, join a Booster Committee and attend our socials.

Booster members receive a dedicated newsletter with information on school activities, helpful tips from other parents and information to assist you in navigating the high school experience. At many levels of Booster membership, you will also receive an Activity Pass so you may bypass ticket lines at most home athletic and other events. Most important, by joining the Booster club, you will find a community of involved parents supporting our kids, their activities, sponsors, coaches and friends.

THANK YOU! and GO Senators!

Your Support is Essential to the Success of Extra-Curriculars

The SHS Booster Club is a volunteer not-for-profit organization of parents, alumni, staff and other supporters that has a proud tradition of providing financial assistance for student activities through our membership drives and fund-raising efforts. The SHS Booster Club is unique in that it not only supports the school's athletic teams, but all student-oriented clubs, organizations, and extra-curricular activities. The Booster Club's financial assistance has exceeded $400,000 over the past twelve years, enabling our students to explore their interests in over 30 athletic and non-athletic organizations. With the assistance of our Principal, Dr. Lisa Leardi, and our Activities Director, John Connolley, we want to do more! But we can't do it without your help! By becoming a member of the Booster Club, your contribution goes right back to the students in the form of uniforms, equipment, supplies, instruments, whatever is needed to outfit a team or put on a musical! This year, we hope to raise urgently needed funds by increasing our membership enrollment to 25% of SHS families. If membership is not an option at this time, please consider volunteering some of your time to help us with any of our fundraising events. Please go to the "To Help" page in the Booster Club section for more information on volunteering. Whatever your contribution might be, please help support our SHS students by becoming part of this long-standing tradition!
