What We Do

SSPAB meet monthly, usually the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Members along with school administrators, attend meetings to coordinate plans for supporting the Performing Arts Departments.

Department Representatives assist each Performing Arts Department Director and Student Leadership Officers in organizing events and fund-raising efforts for their individual departments.

Boosters volunteer their time as chaperons and assistants for Performing Arts events such as performances and competitions.

Boosters host concession sales and/or fundraisers at most Performing Arts events. Money raised through the Boosters goes back into the Performing Arts Departments for such things as: 

  • Annual Performing Arts Senior Scholarships
  • Purchase of supplies and equipment to support PA Depts.
  • Other approved items as deemed necessary by Department Directors for production costs or equipment.
