Who are we?
Blues Backers is the parent-teacher organization at Washburn Rural High School. Our purpose is to work closely with the administration at the school to support the students as well as show appreciation for the hard work of the teachers and staff. This is accomplished through volunteer time and financial support in various ways.
Blues Backers are responsible for organizing and executing a number of events and activities:
- Hosting post-prom each year.
- Fulfilling funding requests from extra-curricular activities (sports, clubs, activities).
- Providing concessions at events.
- Providing hospitality lounge at school-hosted events.
- Student achievement recognition.
- Hosting teacher appreciation events.
- Volunteering at school dances/events.
Blues Backers fundraising efforts include:
- Membership fees.
- Operation of concession stands.
- Selling school spirit merchandise.
There are many ways to get involved and support the Blues Backers and thus Washburn Rural students. The first step is to join online, at walk-in registration, at the PTO merchandising booth at games, or by mail. After that, there are many ways to be involved.
