This group came together because we were tired of putting on multiple fundraisers throughout the year for minimal monetary gain for multiple clubs, activities, and athletic teams. We want a board, members, committee chairs, administration and the community all involved in the future of USD439 and working towards the same goals. We want transparency. We want to get away from "This is the way we've always done it".
