Booster Club

Athletics + Spirit Shop + IPTAY

 

Our goal is to maintain and improve activities and facilities for all students and staff.  In the past few years, besides providing funding for the athletic uniforms, supplies, and equipment, we have also provided funding for sound equipment, stage curtains, choir robes, school advertising, furniture, audio visual equipment, school website design, and building and grounds maintenance.  The funds we generate come from memberships, concessions, the Spirit Shop, Trails West beer sales, IPTAY (I Pay Twenty a Year), a grade school basketball tournament, and various other fundraisers.  All parents are encouraged to become members in addition to grandparents, aunts, uncles and other adult family members; as well as alumni, friends and anyone else who has an interest in supporting and promoting activities at Bishop LeBlond! 

The Booster Club hosts the Annual LeBlond Booster Club Kick-Off Dinner each August.  The 2017 Dinner is Saturday, August 12th at the St. Francis Xavier Parish Center.  Booster Club membership packages are available at this event, at which members are provided with the opportunity to meet coaches, teachers, staff, and current and former LeBlond parents and boosters.  LB logo apparel and merchandise will be on display and available for purchase at the Kick-Off Dinner and will also be available at registration. 

The Booster Club schedules all concession and entry gate volunteers throughout the school year and the Class Representatives from each class (as noted above) are tasked with recruiting the volunteers needed for each scheduled event.  Bishop LeBlond requires each family to dedicate 25 hours of service to the school and all time spent performing Booster Club related activities (including work in the concession stand or at the entry gate) are counted towards this 25 hour commitment....in other words, it's a great way to knock out those service hours!  

For those of you who are returning parents, we thank you for your generous donation of time, talent and treasure in previous school years, which has allowed the Booster Club to continue its financial support of Bishop LeBlond High School.  That support directly alleviates financial obligations that others would have to assume responsibility for.  For those of you who are simply LeBlond supporters, we thank you for your continued commitment, dedication and financial support. It takes all of us to maintain the high standards and pride that have been long associated with Bishop LeBlond High School.

The Booster Club is an organization that provides physical and financial support, not only to athletics, but to as many other worthy LeBlond needs as possible.

 

The Booster Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m., in the Fisher Family Commons at LeBlond.  All Booster Club members are invited to attend and participate.  Officers, Class Representatives and Hospitality Coordinators for the 2017-18  school year are:

Spirit Shop

The Eagles Nest Spirit Shop is part of the Bishop LeBlond Booster Club. Funds from the Spirit Shop go towards purchasing uniforms and equipment for the athletic programs, as well as many other improvements for the school. The permanent store is the glassed-in room at the west end of Fisher Family Commons. We also take the Spirit Shop "on the road" several times throughout the year, setting up at home football games, the Booster Club Kick-Off Dinner, LB Night at the Mustangs, and various other events and activities.

Come check us out! We carry t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, umbrellas, blankets, caps, jewelry, and more! The shop is open during most home games or you may stop by Bishop LeBlond any day that school is in session between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to shop for Golden Eagles merchandise. Call the school at 279-1629 for more details. There are some new items for sale in the spirit shop, including new t-shirt and sweatshirt designs and new FLIP FLOPS.

The Spirit Shop is excited to announce we now accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover! Please see Debbie Mahoney 816-244-2622 or Chris Glenski at 816-244-2033 if you have any questions.

You can also purchase during school hours 8:00 to 3:30 when school is in session. The Spirit Shop is part of the LeBlond Booster Club, and profits go to support our athletic and extracurricular programs. Thank you for your support!”

IPTAY

The Booster Club began a program eleven years ago for the purpose of providing families with the opportunity to give painlessly; while at the same time visibly showing their support of Bishop LeBlond.  The program is called “IPTAY,” which stands for “I Pay Twenty A Year.”  For a mere $20.00, you will have the opportunity to display the enclosed window sticker on your vehicle.  This will enable you to not only provide financial support to Bishop LeBlond; but to also assist with promoting Bishop LeBlond to others within your community by “displaying” your support on a daily basis. 

Along with your IPTAY window sticker(s) is a self-addressed envelope in which you can enclose your $20.00 donation for the first sticker you purchase, and $10.00 for each additional sticker. You may either mail in your donation or deliver it directly to the school.  When mailing in a donation, please include your return address on the inside envelope, so that we may list you as one of our generous IPTAY supporters on the LeBlond website; (which, incidentally, was redesigned several years ago with funds generated by the Booster Club – through IPTAY – and is a wonderful tool for keeping up with all things Bishop LeBlond! Visit www.bishopleblond.com to see for yourself all of the impressive accomplishments and exciting events that are happening (with your help)!

In closing, it is difficult to provide a quality Catholic education without the assistance of so many who care.  We ask that you help support the students of Bishop LeBlond by sending your IPTAY donation today!  Thank you in advance for your generosity!!!
