Mark Morris Booster Club is getting up and running again
Mark Morris Booster Club is getting up and running again and would like your support! Please check out our Booster Club page for updated info on what's going on. We also have a Facebook page, look for Mark Morris Booster Club and click like.
Our meetings are the 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30 in the LGIC room off the cafeteria. The meetings are usually 30 minutes to an hour depending on what's being discussed. We are looking for people to help with committees and bring some great ideas to the table.
We are in the process of putting together a fundraiser for different clubs/sports called "Clothes for the Cause." The more weight we collect the more money per pound! The Band did it last year and made $2700.00 with over 10,000 pounds!
We are in need of storage for the 4 weeks leading up to our April 17th deadline. If you know of a place that we could use for free, let us know!
Booster Club is also in need of a smaller size freezer for our concession stand at the stadium. If you have one or know someone that's looking to get rid of one and would like to help us out, that would be great!
Thank you in advance for your support!

New this year are two important schedule changes. You’ll hear more about this when you return. (see bell schedule).
Wednesdays will be early dismissals instead of late starts. On Wednesdays, school starts at regular time and ends at 1:25 p.m.
Fridays will have an “advisory” schedule each week. Class periods will be shorter, with an extra period inserted between 2nd and 3rd periods.
