Welcome to Maple Boosters!

Maple Boosters, Inc. is a 501c3 tax exempt organization that supports the teachers, staff and students of Maple Elementary School with programs and events throughout the school year. Our mission is...

Maple Boosters holds two major fundraisers during the school year. A Fall fundraiser in September/October and a Malley's Chocolate sale before Easter (February/March). Additionally, we participate in Market Day, collect BoxTops, and Labels for Education and recycle ink cartridges.

As a membership based organization, we hold monthly meetings for the membership to have input and help guide the organization. A budget is presented at the start of the school year and is approved by the membership. Our goal for budgeting is a zero-based budget; what we raise for the year is used for the year. We rely on our members and greater Maple community to provide their time and talents to assist with events. Here are the programs and different ways Maple Boosters provides support for Maple Elementary:

~Welcome Back Picnic (in conjunction with Meet the Teacher Night) Volunteers needed
