“Our mission is to improve and support all activities at Bauder Elementary through the support of parents,
staff, and community members.”
Who are we?
Boosters are parents that have joined together to provide support for students, teachers, and staff. We accomplish this by volunteering our time and resources along with raising money for special projects.
How does Bauder Boosters raise money? Boosters asks our Bauder families for a small membership fee every fall to start the year off. In addition, we hold several large fundraisers, as well as multiple smaller ones. In the 2022-2023 school year we held a cookie dough fundraiser, a school wide Read-a-Thon, sold school t-shirts, worked with parents to support Teacher Appreciation Week, and held monthly spirit nights at local restaurants and businesses. Bauder Boosters is proud to announce that we raised almost $60,000 in the 2022-2023 school year! What were we able to accomplish with our fundraising efforts in 2022-2023? Boosters was able to support the school so much this year thanks to all the efforts and help from parents, teachers, and staff! We were able to fund teacher grants, individual teacher supplies, PE equipment, and the school-wide use of Flocabulary. We showed our staff how much we appreciated them for Staff Appreciation Week by completely transforming the Staff Lounge with new furniture and artwork. We also provided a fun themed meal for each day. We funded all the agendas for our K-5 students in the 2022-2023 school year as well as the salaries for two part time Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI) teachers to help our struggling students achieve grade level competency.
How can you be involved?
There are several ways to be involved with Bauder Boosters! First, become an official Bauder Boosters supporter by sending in your membership fee and buying your student (or the whole family) t-shirts! Becoming a supporter offers your financial support to our mission. Next, fill out your volunteer application so you can volunteer with Boosters as well as in your child’s classroom. If you want to be more involved, please join our monthly ZOOM meetings and see what we’re all about. Meetings are usually held the first Tuesday of every month at 6pm.
