New members are always welcome. The Sports Boosters meet on the second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 a.m. in the Large Instruction Room 111 at Mt. Pleasant High School. The group discusses upcoming events, considers athletic funding requests, learns about the accomplishments of our student-athletes, and plans for the future of the Mt. Pleasant Middle and High School athletic programs. If 7:00 a.m. meetings aren’t your style, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved!
The Sports Booster organization currently sponsors two major fundraisers each year.
The online Vertical Raise Fundraiser kicks off in early August (for Fall Sports Teams) and is the only fundraiser in which the Sports Boosters ask the student-athletes to participate in fundraising. All high school sports teams (fall, winter, and spring) participate in fundraiser at the beginning of their respective seasons.
Our second major fundraiser, the annual WINTER AUCTION (Scheduled for February 22, 2020 from 5:00 - 10:30 p.m. at the Comfort Inn in Mount Pleasant). The winter auction is a great time for parents/guardians, relatives, MPPS staff, and community members to have a great time and support our student-athletes, coaches, and our Oiler athletic programs. Highlights of the winter auction include a raffle and fun games, a silent auction, live auction, and tons of fun!!
Fundraising on a Smaller Scale. The Sports Boosters also operate the concession stands at athletic events. The concessions stands provide a significant portion of our funds. Student and parent volunteers are important and all teams are assigned dates and times to volunteer to work concessions, please take this seriously and volunteer to help in concessions. In addition, smaller occasional fundraising opportunities may occur through out the year.
Fully 100% of Sports Boosters fundraising proceeds benefit Mt. Pleasant Middle and High School sports-related activities and our student-athletes. Each year the Sports Boosters contribute tens of thousands of dollars to support Mt. Pleasant Middle and High School athletics. Main areas of contributions include equipment, training supplies, transportation fees, all competition entry fees, uniforms, and much more. Our belief is to support a long tradition of academic and athletic excellence at Mt. Pleasant Middle and High School with the health and safety of our student-athletes as our highest priority.
