The boosters award scholarships to graduating seniors each year, and they support all of our 5 performing arts departments. Remember--you must have a family membership for 2 years in order for your student to qualify to apply for a senior booster scholarship. The Membership Form is in the Documents folder at the bottom of this Message.

Mattress Sale October 20th in the MUR to support the Performing Arts Boosters.
Do you need to replace an old mattress? Upgrade your quality of sleep while supporting the SSHS Performing Arts Boosters. There will be a full mattress showcase from 10:00AM - 5:00PM in the MUR on October 20, 2018. Brand name mattresses average 50% less than you would find in a regular mattress store. See you there!
