 New Booster Club Something new and exciting is happening at Santa Susana and you can be a part of it!

Join us Thursday, October 11 at 6:30 PM in the MPR regarding the creation of a new Booster Club in support of all clubs and activities at Santa Susana that fall under the School of Letters and Sciences, and the School of Digital Arts & Technology.(See attached flyer)

What exactly is a booster club? Booster clubs are organizations run and organized by the parents of the students in the high school. The main purpose of a booster club is to develop support for the student programs it supports and raise funds as a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.

Booster clubs work to achieve their goals through active participation of as many parents as possible. This is your chance to be a part, right from the start! Attached, also, is an agenda for our first meeting!

If your child is involved in Film, Mock Trial, Robotics, Visual Arts, and/or any STEM Classroom/Club then you will not want to miss this meeting!

Gail Sarkisian and Donna Acosta

Questions? Feel free to email Donna Acosta at dacosta@calluthern.edu
Agenda and flyer are in the attached documents folder below.
