The Bowie Booster Club kicked off the 2016-17 academic calendar on Monday evening.
The mantra was heard loud and clear. Parents are asked to, “Get involved.”
The new leadership group met with roughly 20 boosters, spearheaded by president Keith Weber, vice president Jill Jones, secretary Cynthia Robertson and treasurer Jessica Gresham.
The main topic of discussion centered around “Meet The Rabbits,” which is set for 6 p.m. on Aug. 6.
There will be games followed by the introduction of players at 7 p.m. and finally the traditional girls’ “powder puff” games pitting class versus class.
Football and volleyball T-shirts will be on sale for $12. Join the booster club, and receive a different T-shirt for $10.
Jason Seymour has agreed to be the announcer during “Meet the Rabbits,” and the Bowie band also will perform under new band land Kendel Hickenbottom.
Volunteers have been asked to make homemade ice cream for the event.
The boosters voted to accept the purchase of new volleyball uniforms for the junior varsity and freshmen squads totaling $819. Read more in the Aug. 3 Bowie News.

Season tickets will be available through Aug. 4 for Bowie High School football games.
Tickets are available for $25, and may be purchased on Aug. 3-4 at the high school coaches’ office.
The following schools will play Bowie at Jackrabbit Stadium: Aubrey, Holliday, Jacksboro, Breckenridge and Paradise. The team has three non-district and two district games at home.
