JMS Boosters (2021-2022)
What is a Booster Club?
Jemtegaard Middle School students are supported, in part, by the JMS Booster Club. We are a group open to all parents and guardians who volunteer to provide many different types of programs, activities, and events. We help work as participant volunteers and fund-raise to pay for these events, provide teachers with what they need to support our students, etc. The JMS Booster Club’s fund-raising efforts are kept separate from other JMS fund-raising activities that benefit our students and school. For example, the fund-raising activities organized by the JMS ASB (Associated Student Body) Club are student-led and the funds they raise are designated only to the ASB. Our fund-raising efforts involve only parent/guardian volunteers and the funds pay for the programs, activities, and events sponsored by the Booster Club.
Who receives these funds?
There are many different areas within JMS that benefit from the money raised by the JMS Booster Club. They include the Husky Bucks Program that allows students to earn “bucks” through good behavior and effort and then spend those “bucks” at our store. We support after-school programs like Club 8 Hub, and provide support for school dances, help with 8th Grade graduation celebrations, and more.
What fund-raisers are provided by the Boosters?
The Booster Club organizes Husky Clothing Sales, restaurant fund-raisers (e.g. K&M Drive-In event), and online types of fund-raising (e.g. Amazon Smile). We are registered as a Charitable Corporation by the Washington Secretary of State.
