For over thirteen years, Triple A Booster Club has shown its school spirit by supporting the education and development of students in grades 7 through 12, in the areas of Academics, Arts, and Athletics.
Established as a 501© (3) non-profit organization, Triple A Booster Club serves as the financial manager for the funds raised by each of its Group Accounts and also conducts its own fundraising to help support those groups and to sponsor other events and activities. Currently, the organization manages funds for and helps supplement the funding needs of over thirty Group Account holders, such as Choir, Hockey, Knowledge Bowl, and Special Olympics. Recent funding assistance has been used to help purchase uniforms for the Football team and equipment for the Girls’ Softball team. Requests by individuals or other organizations for contributions to support Academics, Arts, or Athletics are considered as well.
Triple A Boosters also sponsor events and activities that benefit Lake of the Woods School and the communities it serves. In addition, the highly successful Willie Walleye 5K Run, co-sponsored by Triple A and Brockie’s Jewelers, is a community participation event which also serves as a fundraiser for the Cross Country teams.
Triple A Booster Club provided the sign on Highway 11 and the banner in the gym celebrating the success of our State Volleyball championship team. Working with Dollars for Scholars, the Boosters have been able to provide scholarships to graduating seniors. They have also worked with National Honor Society students to create a school calendar of events, including the dates of sporting events, choir and band concerts, dates of parent/ teacher conferences, and school testing dates. Although a large portion of the Club’s general fund comes from the sale of advertising space in the events program used at athletic and other school-related events, sales of the calendars serve as another source of revenue. The 2010-2011 calendar will be available in late August.
Being active with the Triple A Booster Club is a great way for parents and community members to become involved in more aspects of student activities. New ideas are always welcome! Meetings areheld the second Wednesday of each month throughout the year. The next meeting is Wednesday, August 11th, at 5:30 p.m. in the Lake of the Woods School commons.
