The Student Store will be open during lunch for grades 3-4 and 5-6.  For K-1-2, ORDER FORMS will be sent home with students.  K-1-2 order forms need to be returned to the teacher by Wednesday, December 19th for delivery by Friday, December 21st. There is a $3.00 purchase limit for ALL students.  The Student Store is a school spirit activity sponsored by our Student Council.  All revenue supports the continuation of the store. If your child needs support to participate, please contact one of our family advocates. Flyer attached
