THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS

We Are Looking For Sponsors!
Do you know of a business (or own one)  that would benefit from reaching the incredible demographic we have at Marshall High School while supporting our programs? It is a fantastic way for us to generate funds the Boosters needs to support our school.
The Boosters has launched their new Athletic Partnership Program offering Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities on several levels. The right decision for businesses and organizations interested in partnering with one of the top performing high schools in Northern Virginia.
  • Targeted – GCM High School and Tysons Corner Reach is a key market for corporations and organizations based in the GCMHS area
  • Integrated – Multiple Venues – Teams and Events and Print
  • Year Long Approach for the sponsor
  • Visibility – Recognition, Banner Placement, Advertising & Product Placement

Your referrals can be earmarked for your student’s specific teams!
OK, this is what you’ve been waiting for…
What newsletter from a non-profit volunteer organization would be complete without a call out for help? Yes, your dollars are a necessary part. Purchasing memberships, annual passes, spirit wear, giant cards, buying Christmas trees and mulch are all a great part of how we fund everything we do for the school. But we need more than just a check.
We need volunteers at every level. Want to hold a board position? Fantastic! We have great people to learn from. (by the way, our monthly board meetings are open to everyone)
BUT, How about just a commitment of two to three hours per year? 
I think anyone can handle that. So think about stepping up for something this year. Take a shift at the Christmas tree sale or at the concession stand, help setup and clean up the potluck at a sports banquet, take a shift selling spirit wear or memberships and passes at events, drive some students for mulch deliveries… there are so many ways. No hard sell, you just need to ask. Let us know at president@gcmhsboosters.org.
What a wonderful example to set for your student. Go Statesmen!
