IB Booster Club January Newsletter

Happy New Year! We hope everyone is rested from the holidays and snow days and that this semester is off to a fantastic start!

Casino Night/Silent Auction Recap
We had a packed house on January 20th for our first Casino Night and Silent Auction! Thank you to all who attended the event, as well as to everyone who participated in the Silent Auction. This event raised an additional $11,000 for the CHS IB Booster Club! A huge thank you to Retrograde for providing great music throughout the evening, and to Opa Greek Taverna for catering our event with delicious food. We also want to thank all of the businesses and individuals who contributed items to the Silent Auction.

CHS IB Booster Club Update
I am thrilled to announce that we have not only reached, but exceeded, our fundraising goal! To date, our gross income is over $88,000! What an impressive amount to have raised in our first year! So…what are we doing with this money?.

  • The laptop cart for the 900 Hall has been paid for and ordered. It should be delivered to the school soon.
  • We are starting to discuss plans to renovate the IB lab. Our goal is to have all decisions made and products ordered before the end of the school year, so renovation can take place over the summer.
  • We are in the process of determining what project(s) we will fund for CHS Beautification. We plan to have this decided by the end of the school year.
  • There are ongoing “operating costs” for the IB program and Booster Club, so a small portion of our fundraising will always be used for those expenses.

Again, thank you all for your support since our inception. We could not have exceeded our goal without your donations, volunteer hours, and words of support. They all have been instrumental in our success.
