Editor, To The Parents of GR Students: I’m Kathy Vavroch, President of the Fines Arts Booster Club. For those of you that don’t know about the Fine Arts it includes: Vocal music, instrumental music, speech, drama, and art. These Arts are in our elementary, middle school, and high school. The Fine Arts Boosters goal is to promote and raise money for these areas. In previous years, the money has gone to assist with the chorus trips, band uniforms, instruments for vocal and instrumental music, assisting with new sound system for the auditorium, magazines, tools and supplies for art to name a few. We also assist teachers with buying supplies and resources to aide in their instruction. We as Fine Art Booster members provide concessions during Football season to help aid these arts. Without the concession proceeds, the Arts would be asking for more out of pocket expenses for the students and teachers would spend more of their own money to help supply these areas. The Fine Arts Booster Members serve a minimum of two years. There are no fees to be a member. We volunteer our time to help all the G-R children in the school system. The only request we have of anyone is to help work a concession one night during a home football game. We work Jr. High, Freshman, JV or Varsity home games. I took this position to meet new people and families in our school system that I might not normally meet and to raise money for the Arts. Being a Fine Art Booster Member means helping our children and feeling a sense of reward by helping the Arts. Seeing first hand how appreciative the teachers are to receive the rewards are Priceless. I hope that you have learned a little of what the Fine Arts are and what the Boosters do to help support these. If someone talks to you about the Fine Arts I hope now you know what they are and what you can do to help. We have fun and enjoy seeing the positive impact it makes on the children and teachers. If you have any questions you can contact a Fine Arts teacher or myself. Thank you for your time and consideration. Kathy Vavroch Gladbrook, Iowa
