Boosters

Paly Boosters are a unique set of organizations which benefit Paly students at many levels.  They provide enrichment in classes, equipment, and extra-curricular activities in areas as diverse as theater, robotics, instrumental and vocal music, journalism and sports.  In short, they are the reason Paly can provide a rich and varied curriculum for our students, which supports interests in many fields.  Please consider donating to support these groups!  You can donate by check made out to the individual booster group, or online at the Paly store.  To donate by check, simply print out this form or the flyer found at the Booster link, and return it with a check in the name of that booster group to the main office.  Or, simply go to the Paly WebStore, and donate to each group you wish to support with just one checkout!

Thank you for supporting Paly Students!
