You are wanted! The Sibley East Booster Club is encouraging all school supporters to attend its next meeting scheduled for Sunday, September 12th. The meeting will be held at EJ’s Bar & Grill in Gaylord and will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Agenda items for the meeting include:
• Homecoming activities;
• Helicopter heave;
• Membership Drive update;
• Events throughout year;
Established in the fall of 2008, the goal of the booster club is to be an organization which serves as a support group for all athletics and extra-curricular activities that pay an activity fee at Sibley East.
Promoting Area Wolverine Spirit (PAWS) is the theme used by the booster club. The club’s purpose is to support and promote all activities and groups at the Sibley East Junior and Senior High by uniting efforts of students, parents, coaches, faculty, staff and community members in a way that enhances the sharing of school spirit, and provide moral as well as financial support.
During the 2009-2010 school year, the booster club provided monetary support for the following: purchasing helmets for the football team; helped supply a tent for the boys and girls track teams; purchase of adjustable backboard for the girls’ basketball team; equipment purchases for the weight room. In addition, the booster club supported the volleyball, soccer and tennis programs in various ways. The club also provided prizes for homecoming and the helicopter heave.
The booster club continues to look for new and renewed memberships, as well as assistance with various club committees. Membership renewal forms will be mailed shortly. Anyone interested in becoming a new member can access a membership form under community groups on the school’s website.

• A Black Level member pays $50 per year and receives a PAWS window decal and pocket calendar;
