Athletic Programs: Purchases and Donations

Parents, volunteers, and coaches:

In an effort to be transparent and clear about the process of purchasing or donating equipment, foods, awards, or any other sport related item (i.e., banners, trophies, etc.), I want to clarify the processes and procedures required by individuals with respect to these purchases.

If the intent of the purchase is for a personal reimbursement (where a coach or parent buys an item/s and then expects reimbursement by SOMS), the only way SOMS can provide a reimbursement to you personally is that you first have a signed and approved Purchase Order (PO) for the item/s that you buy.  POs are available from Tami Day, our school bookkeper.  Without an approved PO, we will not be able to legally provide you a reimbursement.

If the purchase is requiring funds to be withdrawn from a team or athletic account, then the same procedure as outlined above must be followed.  The coach needs to submit a PO, which must be approved before the order can be made and payment be rendered to the business.

If the purchase is a donation, you do not need to follow the above procedure.  Rather, you can simply purchase the item and give it to the respective team/club along with notifying Tami Day in order for her to provide you with a Donation Acknowledgement Form (if it amounts to greater than $250) and/or a letter of acknowledgement (for your taxes) and our appreciation.

Our hope is that this will clarify processes and diminish any frustration or confusion regarding regulations for which SOMS is required to comply.  Undoubtedly, the partnership we experience from our faithful and supportive coaches, parents and volunteers is superior here at SOMS.  Your commitment to the welfare and success of our students, athletes, programs and staff is unquestionably fantastic.  We look forward to your continued support, and please let me know if you should have any questions.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Rairick, Ed.S

8th GRADERS:

Greetings!

The Engineers of Tomorrow (EoT) is a community based high school robotics team. We are associated with FIRST (https://www.firstinspires.org/), a global robotics community preparing young people for the future!

Membership in EoT is open to high school students throughout the Oldham, Jefferson, Bullitt and Henry County community. Previous experience with robotics is not required. We are currently inviting interested students to join virtual information sessions and attend a virtual “open house” to learn more about our team and consider applying for membership in the 2020-2021 season.
