Greetings, friends of the WCHS Booster Club!
The WCHS Booster Club is charged with supporting and promoting athletics at WCHS. This issue of the Booster newsletter shows our dynamic mission in action. You will read about the success of our winter teams and of our efforts in the spring to support current and future Bulldogs.
On April 26, the Booster Club will again host the Annual Sports Night Gala, which will be lots of fun for those who attend and an opportunity to raise funds through live and silent auctions, and raffles. The event is open to the entire Churchill
In March, the Booster Club is partnering with Village Yoga, owned by Churchill alumnus Fred Margolis, to offer a special class for our students designed specifically for the teenaged student-athlete. Proceeds from the program will go to support Bulldog athletics. Read on to learn more about what yoga can do to enhance sports performance, and how to sign up!
You will also see the efforts of our sports teams to support their programs by offering clinics for elementary and middle school students. So scroll down to learn about our girls' and boys' lacrosse clinics.
