Thank You!

What a Weekend!
We had a busy weekend between staffing concessions for the Creighton Prep vs. Westside football game Friday and then Mach-A-Thon Saturday morning. And as always, we pulled it off!

Concession Sales
For the parents and students that helped with concession sales Friday night. Thank you! We were able to staff the required need. Although a hectic and busy night, I had a good time and hope all of you did as well.

March-A-Thon
The next morning we started bright and early to hold our annual March-A-Thon. What a fantastic day! The turnout was amazing and the music was great as always. It was great seeing so many families of both current and former students as well as the surrounding community come out and enjoy the band.

We are close to our overall fundraising goal with some additional donations continuing to come in and will provide an update at our next booster meeting September 15th.

To all of our booster parents that helped out along the parade route, thank you! Your support and dedication is truly amazing. We cannot do what we do with you!
