OUR HISTORY & FUTURE

The Harwood Booster Club is a group of students, parents, teachers, coaches, administrators and community members of Harwood Union High School. YOU are a Member if you say you are! ANYONE who would like to help The Harwood Booster Club continue to be a vibrant, active, relevant resource for our Students and their Families here at Harwood is invited to join us. We are open to all levels of engagement. In today's busy world, not everyone can go to monthly meetings and take on an executive role in the Club.  There are many opportunities available for everyone to help as much or as little as your lifestyle indicates. 
 
Started in 1985, The Boosters Club has gone through many different phases of activity. Working together with Parents, Students, Administrators and Staff, and utilizing both grant opportunities and fundraising activities, The Booster Club looks forward to securing funds for things like Scoreboards, Field improvements, Scholarships, and to support other projects The School Community sees as a need to enhance our Students learning experience.
