President's Letter
Hello to All,

The most common question I get when I mention Boosters is, "What is that?" Boosters are parents, teachers, and staff members who work together to Boost Conant students in multiple ways. 

This fall you can see Booster members:
·        Manning the grill at football games
·         Selling concessions at home volleyball games
·         Organizing a donation drop off with Savers
·         Passing out snacks & managing coat-check at Homecoming
·         Volunteering at the Conant craft fair
·         Running the Cougar Corner (school store)

It was so exciting to see so many new and returning people at our first meeting of the school year. The energy was fresh and forward thinking. That was only the beginning. If you’d like to get involved, please reach out via email to conantboosters@gmail.com or attend the next Boosters meeting scheduled for Tuesday, September 11 at 7:00pm in the Media Center. 

Go Cougars!
