Please Volunteer!

You could hardly find a group of teachers more dedicated to our students than the Creative Writing faculty at SOA. We need parent volunteers to help them with these beyond-the-normal school day activities. If each of us volunteer for ONE thing, we'll cover each of these without over-burdening any of our fellow parents. Please come to the Booster Club meeting at 6:30 on Feb. 4 or contact me, Joe Kelly, at with the item you'd like to help with.

1. Penn Center Retreat

  • Purchasing snacks for the Penn Center Retreat
  • Purchasing supplies for the Penn Center packets
  • Helping to organize the Penn Center packets
2. Senior Thesis Reading
  • Help purchasing food for the Senior Thesis Reading reception
  • Help setting up the lobby before/during the Senior Thesis Reading

3. Help binding 6th grade novels-in-verse

4. Help re-framing and designing our hallway displays (since they are in sad disarray right now)

5. SOA Showcase fundraiser (10 April)

  • Two parent volunteers to help with visitor flow and reading setup

SOA Showcase Auction

Do you have anything that SOA might auction off at the Spring Showcase silent auction fundraiser? If you have a vacation home, you might donate a weekend. Your business might consent to donate some item or service. Our Booster Club is trying to collect at least 14 items for the auction. Please contact Joe Kelly,, if you have anything you donate.
