Supporting and Celebrating OPRF Student Academics, Activities, Arts and Athletics

Each year the Huskie Booster Club provides funds to different student programs at Oak Park and River Forest High School as part of its annual appropriations of monies raised through parent fundraising efforts. The Huskie Booster Club funds items which enhance student life, are of lasting value that will benefit large number of students or assist student groups unable to access other funding sources.

 

Take a look at just some of the results of that funding, from the teachers and student groups who have benefited directly.
