This is the last chance to order spirit wear items for the current school year. Don’t wait until it is too late.

6) We are out of pants to give out when students are either not within dress code or their pants are messed up. We are good on t-shirts – we don’t need more of those. If you have any dress-code compliant pants that you can donate, we’d appreciate it. Please – no leggings, torn pants, or short shorts.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
