Spirit Wear Swap
Because everyone loves Spirit Fridays and children grow fast, a group of parents have set up a Spirit Wear Swap in the coat room adjacent to the front desk. Leave an item your child has outgrown and take something that fits! Stop by anytime. (And while you’re here, be sure to check the Lost and Found for items your child could be missing.)
Thank you for supporting our school and our greater community by shopping downtown and purchasing so many wonderful books for our classroom libraries!
