Team ASB Budgets due by May 6th – information and planning meetings Apr 21 and 28

Matt Katinas and Holly Poulias presented important information about the ASB team budgeting process.  Their powerpoint presentation has been posted on the Boosters website at http://boosters.rhssports.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/ASB-budget-process-Apr-2016.pdf.  Key points are summarized below.

  • Budgets due Friday May 6th – and teams will receive progressively larger cash incentives if they submit all forms and signatures by Tues May 3rd, Fri Apr 29th or ideally Fri Apr 22nd
  • Budget sessions Apr 21 and 28 – Meetings have been scheduled during the coming two weeks for coaches and team athlete representatives to attend an information session and work on their budgets in the computer lab – parents can sit in if they want to, so ask your coach which session they plan to attend.
  • Instructions and forms on weebly – Instructions and all the necessary forms are available on a “weebly” website: www.rhsbudgeting.weebly.com
  • Contact Matt or Holly if you have questions – and Holly can provide information about budgets and expenditures from previous years (mnkatinas@seattleschools.org, hpoulias@seattleschools.org, and Kate Plesha is involved with budgeting for clubs kaplesha@seattleschools.org)
  • Other advice:
    • Think of this as a “wish list” building budget “capacity” so that any possible expenditure will have been forseen (even if it’s unclear whether fundraising into team ASB or Boosters account will successfully cover that amount)
    • Create separate “line items” for each expenditure, but don’t make them too specific so they would constrain spending
    • Assign a parent to participate in the process – especially if your coach is new to the process or isn’t naturally a planner or a detail-oriented person
    • The budget year is Sept 1 to Aug 31 so figure in expenditures or fundraising that will happen before Sept 1.  In addition to your current team balance, each team receives $500 from ASB.

HALL of FAME FUNDRAISER EVENT Sat Mar 5 6:30 pm – purchase tickets here

2016 HALL of FAME FUNDRAISER

Saturday March 5, 2016

6:30pm @ The Burke Museum

Tickets include dinner & drinks, are $50/person and can be purchased here:  RAB_Fundraiser_2016

Join your fellow RHS sports enthusiasts at this casual, fun event and raise much needed funds for our student athletes!

Roosevelt High School encourages all students to participate in athletics, band and cheer squad, regardless of their ability to pay. We are proud of the fact that over 850 students participate in these programs each year.  The Seattle School District budget for athletics shrinks every year. The goal of the fundraiser is to raise enough funds to fill the gap between what the district provides and the needs of the teams. Our first auction was held in 2000 and we have been raising roughly $80,000 each year since.

As you can see from the facts below, trying to fund 27 men’s and women’s sports teams, as well as club sports, a cheer squad, and two dance teams is costly!

  • Transporting one team to one sporting event costs $300
  • One vaulting box for the gymnastics team costs $2800
  • The cost for one football player’s equipment is $500
  • Women’s soccer uniforms for one team costs $1600 – we field three teams!

These are only a few examples of what it costs to support these vital programs in high school. The NEED for this fundraiser is clear, and our goals are simple.

  • To supplement the school’s athletic budget.
  • To stay on an even par with our competitors when it comes to coaching, equipment, uniforms, fields, and referees.
  • To keep students active and involved.

ALL DONATIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED

If you have any questions or wish to help us plan and organize this awesome event, please contact the fundraising committee at RHS.SportsAuction@gmail.com.
