The New President's Letter
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!

I would like to welcome you to join Conant Boosters. It is a simple way to support our students and community. Boosters are parents, teachers, and community members who want to make a difference for our students. We had many active members graduate with their children in May, so we need new members with fresh ideas to keep us improving. Registration is quick and easy as it can now be done on-line! Go to our website to register today!

As a Boosters member, you never have to attend a single meeting, but it is an effective way to know what’s happening within our Conant community. Principal Nowak and board members discuss current topics effecting our students and our school.  The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 14 at 7:00 in the Media Center !  All are welcome!

I want to highlight our new website! It has been completely updated to make your participation in Conant Boosters easier than ever!  Our website now allows you to register to be a member, volunteer for an activity (even if you only have a few hours available for the entire school year) and learn more about how you become active in this organization!  Go to the website to sign up for volunteer opportunities today!

Your first opportunity to get involved is by volunteering for Young Hearts for Life on Thursday, August 23.  This is a free cardiac screening program offered to a few chosen schools in the area. We are so very lucky to be offered this service for our students. However, YH4L requires 105 volunteers to make it possible to screen all our students in a single day. Finding 105 volunteers 10 days into the school year is a challenge I know we will meet!  Please sign up at https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2343189/false#/invitation
