Booster Club/Fundraising for the 2016 Spring Season
As discussed at the parent meeting, this season, we are asking every family to help raise $100 to help support track and field. This will help us to cover the cost for assistant coaching stipends along with uniform updates. We have several options to help raise the $100 for each family in addition to the normal athletic fees.
- Option 1) Donate to the Booster Club. We are hoping for $100-$150 per family, but whatever you feel comfortable giving is fine with us. This is our preferred method for fundraising this spring. The Booster Club form was sent in an email to each family, and is also poster here: Booster Club Donation Form(pdf)
- Option 2) If you cannot give to the booster club, be a part of our grocery card fundraiser. Please contact Therese Fitzsimmons to pick-up your grocery card. Link to grocery card fundraiser: http://www.vistanationxc.com/grocery-card-fundraiser.html
- Option 3) Be a part of both the Booster Club and the Grocery Card Fundraiser.
All Booster club checks can be brought to Coach Dalby at practice, or before school in lower 527.
California Final Payment Due by April 6th
Final payments for the California trip are due by Wednesday, April 6th. This is the day before we head out to California. The final payment came out to $243.00 to cover the cost of hotel and rental car on the trip for athletes.
Please make checks for $243.00 out to the Mountain Vista Booster Club, and bring them to Coach Dalby at practice or to Lower 527 before school.
