Wanted: Athletic Boosters

How about those MLWGS sports teams this year? Golf – Conference Champs, Girls Volleyball – Conference Champs, Field Hockey – first time ever an undefeated season, and Boys and Girls Cross Country - Conference, Regional and State Champs. The winter sports have also gotten off to a great start. Do you like the new cross country and basketball uniforms? How about the refurbished tennis courts?

The school budget for athletics is $17,000, or 0.27% of the overall budget. Therefore, MLWGS athletic teams would not exist without the Athletic Boosters. Athletic Boosters provide at least $36,000 every year to the MLWGS athletic department, plus resources for transportation and equipment.

Parents who have students playing sports at MLWGS are requested to become members of the Athletic Boosters. While the suggested (tax deductible) donation is $125/student/sport, any donation is gladly accepted. The Boosters' goal is 100% participation for student athletes.

Membership/donation forms are located outside of Coach Hawkins office or contact Jonathan Weinstock (jonathan.weinstock@altria.com) or Peggy Feldmann (pafeldm@aol.com) for a form.
