The Fine Arts Booster Club is a division of the BHS Booster Club that supports and promotes the Fine Arts programs, faculty, and student performers and artists at Bartlett High School in the following classes and groups:  Band, Choir, Drama, Orchestra, Speech and Debate, and Visual Arts

Membership

If you have a student participating in Fine Arts programs or want to support these students, we encourage you to join the BHS Booster Club and designate one of your areas of interest as Fine Arts. We welcome FAB members and interested supporters of the arts to join our monthly meetings and get involved in planning and running our fundraising efforts as well as working with Fine Arts teachers and sponsors to determine enhancements for their classes and groups.

2020-21 FAB meeting dates and location are TBD. Check back in August 2020 and watch for an announcement in the weekly school email.

For more information, email Michael Grzywinski at michael.grzywinski@gmail.com.

Fundraising

The group focuses on fundraising to provide financial support to Fine Arts faculty and students. Fine Arts Boosters (FAB) has contributed funds for the following:

  • Purchase of instructional materials to enhance Fine Arts classes

  • Payment for Art Show judges and purchase of ribbons

  • Payment towards tournaments and camps

  • Scholarships to seniors who plan to stay involved in Fine Arts after high school

  • Allocation of craft show profits to Fine Arts groups based on level of volunteer involvement at the annual FAB craft show

 

The group also fundraisers to support improvements for the BHS Auditorium, a space that hosts music concerts, theater performances, and other school-wide events.

We have two main fundraisers each year:

Annual Craft Show


Each fall, we host a large craft show in the school cafeteria and gym. We distribute profits to Fine Arts groups who volunteer for the event and fund other FAB contributions to Fine Arts programs and senior scholarships.

Upcoming craft show: Saturday, October 24, 2020

We sell custom engraved brass nameplates that are attached to seats in the BHS Auditorium. Profits from this fundraiser are used for auditorium improvements, including new lighting and software for sound, video and lighting controls during stage performances. This fundraiser is an ongoing that provides an opportunity to leave your mark at Bartlett High School while providing funding for a well-used school space.

Nameplates can be ordered for three different sections in the auditorium and will be attached on a first-come-first-served basis.

  • Director section nameplates (front center section of seats) are $200 each.

  • Producer section nameplates (front left and right sections of seats) are $100 each.

  • Stage Manager section nameplates (back left and right sections of seats) are $50 each.

 

Purchasing a nameplate does not entitle ownership, special access, seating rights, or seating reservation rights. Nameplates are approximately .75 x 4 inches and will be attached by the seat number so that they are visible when the seat is in the upright position.

Donations for nameplates are tax deductible as allowed by law, and a receipt will be provided to you.

To order a nameplate, complete the order form and select one of the following ways to pay:

  • Mail the completed order form with a check (payable to BHS Booster Club) to BHS Booster Club, 700 Schick Road, Bartlett, IL 60103.
