Speech, Drama, Broadcasting Boosters
Dear Supporter of the Fine Arts Department at Maine South,
The mission of the Speech, Drama & Broadcasting Boosters organization of Maine South High School is to support the students participating in these three programs, both in the classroom and as extracurricular activities. Our primary focus is to raise funds and offer scholarships to graduating seniors. In the past three years we have distributed over $35,000 in scholarships. The SDB Boosters support and assist the faculty, the Fine Arts Administration, and the students involved in speech, drama and broadcasting.
The Speech Team participates in interscholastic competitions. We support these students by contributing financially for their equipment needs. To foster team spirit and add incentive, the Boosters also provide funds for breakfast treats for the early morning meets.
The Drama Department produces a number of shows throughout the year. A large part of our fundraising is through raffles, concessions, and flower sales at these performances. TLC dinners are served during tech rehearsals to everyone involved with the production of the fall and winter plays and the musical. The Boosters also support drama at Maine South by hosting receptions during special performances and recognition ceremonies, and assisting the International Thespian Society Troupe with their fundraisers.
The Broadcasting program includes both radio and television experience for students. Funds donated to SDB Boosters have enabled us to assist with updating broadcasting equipment, to host an end-of-the-year reception celebrating excellent work and festival awards, and to provide other support of these students’ activities.
Please consider joining Speech, Drama & Broadcasting Boosters. As an added incentive, your membership will enable you to enjoy the benefit of purchasing pre-sale tickets to the Spring Musical. Our meetings are open to all members and are held five times a year. We can always use help with TLC dinners, concessions, and flower sales at performances and many of us really enjoy getting to know each other by working together in support of our children’s creative endeavors. Please join, even if you are not available to volunteer. Though most of our members are parents of current students, some SDB Boosters are alumni families or friends from the community who wish to support arts education at Maine South, and we are so grateful to them. We depend on and truly appreciate any donations of time and/or your financial support of the Speech, Drama & Broadcasting Booster programs!
