2. There are THREE summer STEM opportunities now available for high school students. The Army Educational Outreach Program’s (AEOP) apprenticeships are an excellent way to learn about STEM research in a university or Department of Defense laboratory.

REAP offers high school students a research experience in a university lab. Visit the link below to apply.

IB Booster Club December Newsletter

It is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close and we are halfway through the 2017-2018 school year. The Campbell High School IB Booster Club has already submitted the necessary funds to purchase the laptop cart for the 900 Hall! It should arrive in January, so all IB students will be able to benefit from this year one accomplishment!

Casino Night Update:

We are so excited that we will have a full house at Casino Night and our Silent Auction. Opa Greek Village Taverna is catering our event so come with an appetite! Opa is located in Belmont Village and we encourage you to try them if you haven’t already had the chance. The food is delicious!

As previously announced, 10 Ton Stone cannot perform due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict. However, another local band, Retrograde, will be our musical entertainment. The band is led by Kayla Taylor who has been a generous supporter of the Nickajack Elementary and Griffin Middle School Foundations. She and Retrograde are thrilled to be able to support the CHS IB Booster Club.

We have received great donations for our Silent Auction! We are pleased to announce that EVERYONE will have the opportunity to bid on items whether you attend the event or not. All you need is your phone! A list of what you can bid on and more details on the event coming in January. Have items to donate to the Silent Auction? Email Kati Koenig at gakoenigs@mac.com

IB Booster Club November Newsletter

On behalf of the Campbell High School IB Booster Club, I would like to thank everyone who donated to the Inaugural Campaign. The support we received from our parents and local businesses helped us raise an incredible $63,596 in just 4 months with close to a 50% participation rate!!! We would like to thank Los Bravos (Smyrna location) and The Campbell Educational Foundation for their donations, as well as many of the local businesses in the Atlanta area who matched over $11,000 in parent donations. We understand that not everyone is able to make a monetary contribution but would still like to be an active participant in the Booster Club. We have lots of volunteer opportunities available throughout the year and we encourage you to send us an email or complete a volunteer form.
 
Casino Night tickets for our January 20, 2018 event are on sale at:  http://boosterclub.campbellib.org/ticket-sale/. There are a limited number of tickets available so make sure you get them early. The link will turn off when we sell out. In the event we sell out, you can email Denise Raymond at president@boosterclub.campbellib.org to be put on the waiting list on a first come, first serve basis.
 
We are looking forward to a great night of entertainment with Kayla Taylor & Retrograde, and a Silent Auction with lots of fantastic items already. It is certainly going to be a night to remember! Note: Casino Night is open to ANYONE 21 and older!
