OPRF Huskie Booster Club
Enthusiastically LIFTING UP all areas of OPRF since 1970
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
Each year the Huskie Booster Club provides funds to different student programs at Oak Park and River Forest High School as part of its annual appropriations of monies raised through parent fundraising efforts. The Huskie Booster Club funds items which enhance student life, are of lasting value that will benefit large number of students or assist student groups unable to access other funding sources. Booster funding is not intended to fund items of life-safety, core curriculum or other items more appropriately covered in the school budget or student fees. Appropriation requests come from sponsors of various areas throughout the school, including academic divisions, activities sponsors, arts directors and the athletic department. All requests are reviewed and approved by the school administration.
This year we appropriated over $40000 that was distributed evenly throughout the academic, art, activity and athletic areas of the school. Some highlights include a dive stand for our swim and dive team, a Whisper Room Recording Studio, mini-PCR machines and Gel Electrophoresis Equipment for our Biology students, sewing machines, microphones for Showchoir, room 3317 and the auditorium, targets for lacrosse and soccer teams, equipment for the Video Game Club, Sphero programmable balls for the Physics department, a pottery wheel, games for the Table Top Club, and a new Mascot costume for our State Send-Off Parades.
