Booster/Parent Group

Invitation

Drama Boosters

Calling all parents of Thespians! The SHS Drama Board has always been a dynamic, passionate, and fun group of parents helping to ensure our students are receiving the support and funds needed to be successful. It's not hard work and it's not time-consuming. Many of us also have full-time jobs. We help each other out and it's very collaborative. We meet once a month (third Thursday at 7:30-8:30 pm via video - at least for now). We divide all of the responsibilities amongst the group. The next meeting is on Mar 18@7:30 via Zoom.  

Some of the Board members have students graduating, so we have the opportunity for a few parents to take on a consistent role (Secretary, Membership, and Fundraising). Please join this amazing group during the March meeting to get a sense of who we are and what we do and then we collectively decide how you can help. We’re looking forward to meeting you.

Foundation

The SHS Foundation is always on the lookout for new Directors on our Board. Join us to help decide how we spend funds for capital improvements, classroom equipment, and social/emotional programs.  Prospective board members must attend at least one board meeting to get to know us.  At a second meeting, their nomination can be brought up for a vote.  Monthly meetings are held on Fridays, 8:30am-10am.  Remaining meetings this year are on Apr 2, May 7, and May 28.  Please contact saratogahsfoundation@gmail.com for more information.  

MAP Boosters

Join the MAP Board of Directors!  The MAP Booster Board works directly with teachers and students for fundraising, purchasing decisions, and a wide range of activities throughout the school year.  Joining the board is a great way to learn more about this award winning program up close and a way to get involved in your child’s academics. Join us for a meeting and see what we are all about!   We are looking for new members and we’d love to have you join us.  Potential job titles include: 

  • Secretary (note taking and distribution during monthly meetings,

  • Treasurer (banking, and financial reporting),

  • SMASH’N Coordinator (collaborating with teachers/students on end of the year event).

MSET (Robotics) Parent Group

Competition season is in full swing.  Encourage your students to join MSET robotics next year so they can apply their engineering mindset to build amazing robots and learn soft skills along the way.

Music Boosters

Saratoga Music Boosters (SMB) is an all-volunteer, charitable organization that supports our dedicated teachers in the delivery of excellent music education across the elementary, middle and high school grades at Saratoga schools. Music is a large family at SHS and we’ve all missed the opportunities of getting together to enjoy the wonderful music our students produce. SMB has been busy supporting the fabulous remote music programs, some of which you can enjoy on our website. 

With several of our board graduating at the end of this school year, we are in urgent need of new members to fill crucial roles. If anyone has website or database management skills, we’d especially love to hear from you but we have several other openings too. 

 

Please join one of our upcoming meetings via Zoom (see dates below), or contact SMB President Yvonne Linney at saratogambpresident@gmail.com
