Palos Verdes Peninsula High School and Palos Verdes High School will be holding their annual Booster Club fundraisers during the month of March. This is a big and needed opportunity for these great schools to raise a large percentage of their Booster Club’s contributions. You don’t have to be a parent of a school’s student to enjoy these events. The purpose of these high school fundraisers is to raise money to support the 3 A’s – Academics, Arts & Athletics.
Booster Club Supporters take our high schools to a whole new level of excellence. The contributions help to subsidize so much at our local high schools. They help with academics by bringing in Tutors, Link Crew, Technology Upgrades, Digital Database, Speech & Debate Advisories, and Academic Decathlons. In the Arts Department, they help with the drama productions, video production, choral and color guard, musical equipment for the band, and more. The Athletics Department also gets help with turf maintenance, athletic trainers, athletic equipment, and maintenance for the athletic facilities.
Palos Verdes High School will be sponsoring their 2024 Booster Club’s CATCH THE WAVE fundraiser on Friday, March 15, 2024. The event will feature an amazing night of food, dancing, silent auction, and live auction. Get a group of friends and plan an evening of fun for only $135.00 per person if purchased by 2/15/2024, or after February 15, 2024, the price will go up to $160.00. Some of the projects that were able to be completed because of these funds in the 2022-2023 school year include: a full refurbishment of the the outdoor stage at Senior Park, an expanded cage ball and weight room training area, and extensive landscaping work which included a new planter and mural on the main campus driveway. This year’s event will be held at the Palos Verdes Golf Club located at 3301 Via Campesina, Palos Verdes Estates.

These schools need and appreciate all your support to ensure the success of all Palos Verdes High School students. Historically, our district receives far less money per student due to state funding inequities. Bond initiatives, parcel taxes, Peninsula Education Foundation, and PTSA have all helped, but the additional funds from the Booster Clubs are necessary to meet our student needs.
