PRESIDENT'S Message

The Fremd Booster Club Board has a great group of 40 - 60 Fremd parents that enjoy supporting our mission of fundraising and financially supporting all students at Fremd High School, in all of their endeavors.
 
Each year we have natural volunteer turnover.  The parents of graduating seniors leave the board, and others move on due to work or other schedule changes.  To be a successful club, we need new volunteers to fill open board positions.  No previous experience is required.  We will be holding two New Member Orientation meetings in April.  Both sessions will be identical, you only need to attend once.  They will be held at 7 pm at Fremd.   We will have information about our various committees, explaining responsibility and time commitment.  Please consider attending, we need additional dedicated volunteers to continue our mission.  Final information will be posted on our web site, fremdboosterclub.org, or you can email me directly to get an invitation to attend at fremdboosterpresident@gmail.com
 
Boosters is still working hard to support your children.  Much of the spring semester will focus on giving back money to Fremd and its students via scholarships, the Principal's wish list, and of course the Post-Prom activities associated with the trip to Bridgeport Art Center.  
 
Although most of our fundraising is done, we still have our Spring Craft Fair coming up on April 8, 2017.  Please come out and support our crafters.  Admission and parking is FREE.  Also, our Spirit Shop is open often with lots of new items, so think of the Shop first when you are shopping for Fremd gear.  Finally, it is never too late to join Boosters.  We turn your $25 membership fee into lots of wonderful support for Fremd students.  Visit fremdboosterclub.org membership materials.  We are independent of any other organization.  All $25 stays at Fremd.  There are no monies sent to state or national entities. 
 
The Booster Club will be pushing hard to finish strong.  Thanks to our board for all their hard work, and all booster club members for supporting Fremd High School and our students.

Booster Club President

Thank you for your support!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017  Grand Gala Dinner Dance in support of our Fremd students.  Jersey and jewelry raffles, trips to Vegas and South Carolina, a wine pull, Blackhawks and Cubs items, and a number of Fremd items, including parking passes were purchased by the attendees.  A huge thank you to everyone who donated items to the live and silent auctions, to our teachers and administration staff, and to all the student organizations that created items and contributed to our event.  And special thanks to the Dinner Dance committee and Booster Club volunteers, who spent many hours planning for this spectacular evening.
