    2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR!

    It is very important for anyone wanting short-sleeve shirts for next year to PREORDER them. Shirts available for purchase at Open House will be very limited (student sizes in particular) and 3XL and 4XL will only be available if they are preordered. Shirts will be in stock throughout the year but not all sizes in all styles may be available.

    Please make certain that your Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and/or 2nd Grade student has an extra set of clothes at school at all times. Please put the clothes in a ziploc bag for the child to keep in his/her classroom cubby or backpack. The little ones tend to have spills, get dirty, or have accidents that require a change of clothes. Thanks for your help and consideration in this matter.
