Fenton Bison Athletic Boosters
Did you know that the Bison Athletic Boosters is like the PTO for all sports teams at Fenton? The Bison Boosters are supported 100% by volunteers. We raise money by opening the concession stand at sporting events. ALL profits earned from the concession stand go back to the students; either in the form of senior scholarships or coach Wish List requests.
We are pleased to report that for the 2012-13 school year, the Bison Boosters awarded three $1,000 scholarships to athletic students and fulfilled coach Wish List requests of $6,897 so that additional equipment could be purchased for Wrestling, Volleyball, Dance, Softball, Baseball, Football, Cheerleading, Golf and the Athletic Trainer. The more the concession stand is open, the more money we can raise to benefit ALL sports at Fenton.
Why volunteer?? It’s fun - a great way to meet other parents - to help support your child’s sport – to help to keep the concession stand open - a “special surprise” to our volunteers (first come, first serve) and NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.
Bison Athletic Boosters Monthly Meetings: Bison Boosters meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Faculty Cafeteria. Please note that the December meeting has been canceled. The next meeting is scheduled for January 8.
Attention all parents: The Bison Boosters have created an email account to provide information on upcoming volunteer opportunities and events. Simply send your email address to: firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to a mailing list for upcoming information.
