South PTC Update 11.19.17

Hey South families, here’s the latest PTC Update!

Free student shirts!  Thanks to everyone who sent in their students size forms for the free student shirts (Young K-6th grade)   Sizes will be compiled for every student and any student who didn’t have a form sent in will still get a free shirt.  We will make sure to stop by every classroom to get a size for each South student.  Thank you South family for all your support to enable us to do this!

Spirit Sleeves!  like leg warmers for your arms 🙂  We were able to secure a limited amount of them and have adults and kids sizes available for $8 per pair.  Send in your money  by 11/29 marked in an envelope with “Spirit Sleeves” childs name and teachers name.  Orders will be sent home 12/1.  First come, the children’s size is very limited in quantity.

Clothing sale!  We opened up the online website again for a couple weeks to collect orders.  You may also order by the paper form.  The shirts that match the free student shirts are available this way as well.  So if you’d like to get more to match your students- or have younger or older children, please make sure to order online or with the paper form!  Store closes and forms are due by 11/30.
Enter code: GBulldogs17
