The Wakefield Boosters is managed by parent volunteers with the goal of raising funds to support the extra-curricular activities of our Wakefield students – athletics, student clubs and SGA classes – as well as support the needs of our coaches and teacher club representatives.
Our two major fundraising actives are concession stand sales and spirit wear sales.
Concession Stand – Boosters manages the inventory and staffing of the concession stands for our home games – football, field hockey, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, cheer conferences, swim/dive meets, lacrosse and soccer.
We are unique in that we have our student athletic teams, clubs and SGA classes sign up to help run the concession stands for certain games to earn money for their team, club or student body class. This also provides them an opportunity to build on their customer service skills. The parents of students who play volleyball, field hockey, lacrosse and soccer can also earn money toward their students sports program by volunteering to help run the stand during our Fall & Spring sports seasons.
Spirit Wear – We promote school spirit by selling Wakefield Warrior apparel & gear. We are generally set up to sell at all football & basketball games. We sell spirit wear at major school events such as Back-to-School Night, Meet the Coaches Night, Middle School Info Night, Wakefield Holiday Shop, Sports Award Nights and Wakefield’s PTSA Spring Plant Sale. Students can also buy spirit wear at the Wakefield School Store.
Twice per year (Fall & Spring) we host an online spirit wear sale where we offer more variety in style and sizes.
For both concessions and spirit wear, our operating margins are slim. When we “make” money at the concession stand or from selling spirit wear, that money immediately goes to:
- stocking concession & stand maintenance
- replenishing spirit wear
- paying the student clubs, teams, groups/classes who work the concession stand
- fulfilling fund request for DSA, coaches, clubs, SGA and teachers
Boosters also oversee the operation of the Wakefield School Store opened 2-days per week (Tuesday & Thursdays) during all 3 lunch hours.
Our Wakefield High School Gator Fund is underway and we are half way to our goal of raising $7,500. Boosters was happy to donated $1,000 to the fund. If you are interested in helping fund this must-have gator for the athletic department please use the link to donate. Wakefield High School Gator Fund A huge thank you to the 46 generous donors who already gave to the GoFund Me -you are amazing! Remember its time to say “NO”! to the shopping carts.
Parent volunteers are critical to our success. Volunteer opportunities for the Winter sports season will be posted soon to the website. Volunteering with Boosters is a fun way to make a positive impact, get to know the students and our hard working teachers and staff.
