PTO to Provide School T-Shirts for All Students

The PTO is excited to share that we will be providing each student with a t-shirt for this school year to wear with pride to school events, on field trips and for demonstrating their school spirit!

Shirt sizes will be distributed as follows in early October:

  • K – 1st:  Youth Small
  • 2nd – 3rd: Youth Medium
  • 4th – 5th:  Youth Large

(Note: If you would like to request a different size for your student, please do so here by no later than Friday, September 15th : https://goo.gl/forms/3KdMsNuVaFkwjLu22)

The PTO is able to provide t-shirts to all of the students because of the generous support of parents, families and local businesses!
