 *If you see (V,JV,C) - Varsity(V), Jr Varsity (JV), or Freshman/C Team (F,C) listed nest to one name it does not mean that parent is representing all three teams or any one team.  Once teams are decided then it is easier to confirm Booster Crew.  IF on person is listed it just means that we only have one parent so far.  IDEALLY, If there is more than one team, then one Booster Crew parent is desired/needed to represent each team.  
 
**Not all Activities and Clubs are listed.  If your student is involved in a Club/Activity and you would like to see them represented, please contact Lida Buckner.
