Participate in the boosters' fundraising and event planning. Without the help of our boosters club, we would not be able to pull off such amazing performances for the community. Boosters club members do not have to be parents of students in the program but typically are. The boosters club is an integral part of our program.

Boosters Club Meetings are held at PAC unless otherwise noted.

  • April 19th at 6:30 pm
  • May 17th at 6:30 pm
  • The boosters club will begin meetings again in the fall for the school year 2022-2023
