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

ALL student athletes & drivers of athletes to practices & events should complete and submit transportation forms

Although this process has been in place for a number of years, Booster Reps should emphasized to their teams that when students do not have official district transportation and are riding with a parent or anther student to athletic practices or events, the parents of the student athlete should complete and submit the “Athletic Transportation Form” acknowledging that the School District is not liable and that permission had been granted.

ANY parent or student driving other student athletes to or from practices or events where no official district transportation has been provided should complete and submit the “Volunteer Driver Checklist” to indicate they have liability insurance and that their vehicle is in proper working condition.  This form is DIFFERENT from the “Volunteer” form and process that should ALSO be completed by anyone who is not faculty, staff, or student, and who will be spending a significant amount of time with student athletes either on or at school events or property or when traveling to or from events.

If you have questions related to these forms or the 2015-2016 responsibilities and you  should feel free to contact Mr. Joan Prices, Associate Principle at Roosevelt.

Important Booster Meeting 3/9/15 – Presentation on Budgeting for Next Year

Roosevelt athletics are funded by the school district (e.g. coaches, facilities) and ASB funds and supplemented by Booster fundraising.  Every spring, each team must create a budget for the following school year.  Mike Scott (Athletic Director) and Holly Poulias (Fiscal Officer) have created a presentation for Boosters that will also be used with student representatives from each team.  Please be sure that your sport is represented at the Booster meeting on Monday, March 9th, 2015 for this important presentation.  Specific questions by booster team reps can be directed at Mike or the head coach (who should be involved in the process along with the team captains).
