President's Message

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and adjusting well to the extraordinary circumstances we are all facing during this pandemic. The 2020-2021 school year is going to be an incredibly unusual one.  Since their independent fundraising efforts have been stifled, the sports and extracurricular clubs of Springfield High School need your support now more than ever!  A great way to do this is through joining the Springfield High School Booster Club.  

Today you can sign up and become a Booster Member!  In 2019-2020, your memberships helped to provide over $80,000 to 37 different student activities.  The SHS Booster Club supports all extracurricular activities; whether your child plays on one of the sports teams, is in a language club, band, or other activity, we are there to help your child’s team or club.  Since our ability to hold our annual Red & Black Signature Fundraising Event next February might be jeopardized by the current public health crisis, our membership revenue is even more crucial than ever!

Your Booster membership fee will directly support student activities. You will also receive the historical member benefits, like a car magnet to proudly display your school loyalty, and a Fast Pass (to gain free entry into many school activities) and free popcorn passes, which we hope you’ll be able to use later this year.  Enclosed is an application form that will give you more information on the different levels and benefits.  We ask that you join our efforts to support Springfield High School activities. For those who would like advertise their business while supporting the Booster Club, we also offer various levels of Corporate Sponsorships.

We’re making it even easier to join or donate this year by giving you the option to do so online: https://springfieldhighboosters.square.site/  If you join the Boosters before October 15th, you will receive an Early Bird discount good through November 15th at our online Spirit Wear store through Primo Designs (https://primodesigns.net/shsboosters/shop/home).  It is a one-time 20% discount, instead of our usual 10% discount (15% for corporate members).  

We will provide members with a calendar of events as soon as we are able to plan the rest of the year. Meanwhile, keep up to date by following our Facebook page: Springfield High School (SHS) Booster Club and website: https://www.sps186.org/schools/springfield/booster/?p=13393. We certainly hope to be able to gather and support SHS student activities sometime very soon!

Thank you for supporting Springfield High School.  Please fill out and return your application.
