Booster Club
What is the Sanborn Central Booster Club? The booster club is an organization that helps Pre-K thru 12th grade students and staff at Sanborn Central by providing additional funding for different activities throughout the school year. A few of the items the booster club has helped fund in the past are; field trips, playground equipment, state tournament activities, bleachers, I-pads, supplemental reading programs and record boards. The concession stand is run by the booster club and all proceeds from the concessions go back to the booster club to help make Sanborn Central the best it can be!
We have set up a work schedule for the concession stand. If you can not work your scheduled shift please find someone to switch with and let Ashly Uecker (1-605-770-2221) or TambiWormstadt (1-605-770-3077) know of the changes.  The schedule can be found at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxqWDgwTHOqecEk0LXVrQ2R4UTg/view?usp=sharing
