For the past 30+ years, the Boosters Club at RBS has stood in the gap where needed and continues to do so with Christ-centered leadership. Made up of volunteer parents, teachers, church, and community members, the Boosters work to bless RBS in three very specifc ways: Academics, Arts and Athletics. While not professional fundraisers, the Lord has seen fit to bless their efforts year after year. The Boosters is a vibrant group looking to make impactful changes for the school in unique ways.
Some of the areas of support across all grade levels have included:
- Academics: maps, globes, video equipment, curriculum updates, chess club, ActivBoardsTM, media center shelving, science hardware and binoculars
- Fine Arts: theatre/choral hardware, band instruments, computer software for arts use, electric piano, drying racks for painting, sponsorship for competition
- Athletics: team uniforms, equipment, trip sponsorship, training for staff, playing field upgrades, weight room, Spanish Bibles, championship awards, softball scoreboard
- Faculty Support: discovery program funding, curriculum updates, science training, copier hardware,
- Capital Improvements: furniture, equipment, bookstore upgrades, nurse’s office upgrades, MS lockers, kitchen remodelling, CPR training equipment, playground equipment.
The AAA Boosters were a fundamental part of the fundraising for the original construction of the Rock Royer Gymnasium, now the Crusader Field House.
The main fundraising drive for the AAA Boosters is the annual citrus sale (Nov/Dec; includes citrus, nuts, candies, and smoked turkey). They are also active in the elementary jog-a-thon and consessions for home basketball games. With the addition of the SportsPlex to our campus, the AAA Boosters club can be seen at each home football game selling concessions. You won’t find a better half-smoke out there!
The AAA Boosters can’t do it all without the support of our wonderful parents and faculty. Come out and share the vision for a brighter RBS. They are always looking for more volunteers. Be a blessing to our students and in return the Lord will bless you. For more information, please contact Mr. Bill Carlson, 202-723-4067.
