The Gehlen Catholic Fine Arts Boosters (FAB) is comprised of parents and fine arts moderators dedicated to the advancement of the arts, which includes art, band, choir, drama, and speech. All parents whose children are in Gehlen Catholic’s preschool – 9th grade and whose 10th-12th grade students are involved in the above arts departments are automatically “Booster members.”

The Fine Arts Boosters meet approximately four times a year, with additional meetings scheduled as needed.  Meetings are open to all and are posted on the school website.

Every year, those families whose child(ren) are enrolled in grades 5-9 & those families whose child(ren) in grades 10-12 who are involved in art, band, choir, drama, and/or speech are asked:

  1. Work one concession stand (football or basketball);
  2. Work the Turkey Dinner or the Spring Play/Music Dinner;
  3. May be asked to donate food to a tailgate; and
  4. All 7th-12th grade parents MUST attend 1 MANDATORY Parent meeting each year. 

If you are unable to work the assigned event and shift listed, you are to recruit your replacement(s) & notify the chairs via email or cell phone.

 

If parents do not fulfill their responsibilities, parents will be expected to comply with the school’s and diocese’s consequences as discussed at the Mandatory Parent Meetings on August 24th, which may include students sitting out one or more activities. 

Students in fine arts programs are expected to work functions as scheduled with parents and to participate in any special fundraisers per the departments they choose to participate in. The consequences for students who do not fulfill their responsibilities are the same as their parents.

The proceeds from the Fine Arts Boosters offset the costs of the fine arts which are not funded by the school. Those expenses include but are not limited to transportation, registration fees, supplies, capital expenditures, equipment, lodging, uniforms, and more.

On behalf of the Gehlen Catholic Fine Arts Boosters, thank you for support of Gehlen Catholic’s preK-8 and 9-12 art, band, choir, drama & speech departments. Your support is key to your child(ren)’s success!

Sincerely,

Leah Johnson, President
