Madison East High School Purgolder Boosters

Madison East High School Purgolder Booster Club is a all-volunteer parent-run organization that provides financial support for 25 athletic teams. Our motto is "Achieving Excellence Through Athletics" because we believe that participation in high school athletics has a positive impact on academic achievement, school attendance and post-high school aspirations. Team sports provide opportunities to build important time management, problem-solving and leadership skills. Athletics teach students self-control, self-confidence and self-esteem. It also allows members to improve and maintain their physical health.

Purgolder Boosters raise much needed funds for new and safer equipment, replacement uniforms, concussion testing and scholarships through three main activities; booster club memberships, basketball concession stand sales, raffle sales, online auctions and an annual community event.

We welcome anyone to be a part of the Boosters--parents, grandparents, alumni, friends and neighbors of East High. Membership includes free admission to all home, regular-season sporting events.
