Booster Club Makes Donation

At the July School Board meeting, the East Central Booster Club made an $8,000 donation.  This donation is to be used to help offset activity fee costs for students.  This school year, East Central students will only pay $25 per activity.

This donation was made possible because of the Colton Classic Golf Tournament held September, 2015.  The booster club will be holding the 2nd Annual Colton Classic on September 11, 2016, at the Sandstone Golf Course.  For more information on this, please contact the boosters at .
Shown are School Board Members, Booster Club Members and School staff.  From left to right:  Pete Brown, Sherry Johnson, Rich Thomsen, Carrie Sura, Judy Loken, Kayla Nelson, Darren Fogt, Jeanette Kester, Doug Ecklund, Activities Director Andrew Miller and Superintendent  Andy Almos.
