Boosters

Welcome to the VAPA Booster Club!   

The St. Francis High School VAPA Booster Club is a parent-run, non-profit organization that works in partnership with the Performing Arts Department to raise funds and offer assistance in running and completing successful performances. As a parent of a St. Francis student in the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA), you are automatically a member of the great group of amazing families.

 

The Booster Club meets regularly to assist in meeting the goals of upcoming performances. From the Fall Theater Arts Showcase and Choir Concerts to the Spring Musical, we greatly value the support of our parents and families.  We could not succeed without active participation from our Boosters!  As an added bonus, all VAPA volunteer hours count towards the 25 service hours required of all St. Francis Families!

 

If you are interested in sharing your talents and time or if you have any questions regarding the opportunities to be part of this amazing team, please contact Dan Dewig, VAPA Assistant, at: dewig@stfrancishigh.net Many thanks in advance!
