Serving Whittell's Students

Let's Stay in Touch!

Sign up for the Weekly Warrior Newsletter, all about what Whittell Boosters Club and Whittell are doing. Comes out every Sunday we have school.

Monthly Meetings

 Whittell Boosters Club, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit fundraising organization established in 1972 to support and enrich the middle and high school experience at Whittell High School. We support all students in their efforts to grow and make the most of their high school experience, not just sports but arts, science and social activities.

Join us at our next meeting to network with other parents, hear our priorities, and stay informed. We hold elections for the coming school year in May. 

Next Meeting: Tuesday, June 12 at 5:15 pm

We would love to have you and your family participate in Whittell Boosters Club. Email Boosters President Lisa Valentine at

Fun Things Boosters Funded!

Physics of

We supported the Physics Class on an unconventional, but totally educational, trip to a real life physics lab on motion at Magic Mountain.


Actors from the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival come to Whittell for 2 weeks/year to work with our 6-12th Graders to perform the Bard's Best, and explore self-expression, public speaking and language. 

Robot Babies for
Psych Class

Boosters bought five robot babies to help students explore human development, empathy and partnered relationships. They do cry and sleep, but they are normal baby-sized.

Bridge Building & Innovations

Boosters provides  a stipend to every teacher to buy extra supplies at their discretion. 6th Grade uses hers for physics projects and gets additional help to run the Innovations elective for middle schoolers.

Movie Nights
Under the Stars

Fall and Spring nights in Tahoe are magical. Movie Nights on the lawn with popcorn and friends are now a cornerstone of Homecoming Week.

Academic Team Uniforms

It was clearly the spiffy sweaters that carried the Academic Team to State for the last two years in a row. A uniformed team is a unified team: 3rd in 2022 and 2nd Place in 2023. Looking smart, kiddos!

AP Gift Bags

Boosters covered the cost of AP testing in 2023 for every AP student and gave everyone a gift bag with waters, pencils, gum, and mini deodorants to show our confidence in them on test day.

Tennis Club

We don't have a team (yet!), but we have a tennis court across the street so Boosters organized a Middle School Tennis Club to build skills so the kids are ready when they age up to high school. 

Clue Game Night & Dinner

Culinary Educator, Ms. Martin organized an elaborate Clue Night & Dinner to raise money for more delicious Culinary activities. Boosters covered the food costs.

Booster's Fundraising Events

Boosters has multiple fundraisers that always need parents and supporters to share a few hours at a time that can help a lot. Join a committee and help Boosters by writing for the newsletter, sending out social media posts, selling logowear at events or contacting alumni. Contact us at to volunteer.

Whittell Boosters and South Tahoe Boosters Clubs work together to host a two-day tournament at the world class Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. Volunteers, donors, and golfers needed.  More Info.

4th of July Parking Lot Fundraiser

We work with Zephyr Cove Elementary School's Parents Club and Douglass County to park cars at the school lots for beach visitors over the 4th of July weekends. Volunteers can assign the proportion of their hours to their favorite sport or programs. 

Programs We Love to Fund

The success of our fundraising and programs is dependent on volunteer parents, student and friends of the Whittell families. A good community makes for a good school, and a good school improves the quality of the community. Use this form to submit your requests.
