Live Thankfully T-Shirt Orders Due This Friday, Nov. 4

Our Student Council will again be partnering with Dr. and Mrs. Kelley and Live Thankfully. One of the things we do is sell T-shirts at a reduced rate. This helps offset the cost of purchasing Thanksgiving meals to those families in need in our community.

·      If you would like to purchase a shirt, please send $10 for each shirt ordered. These navy blue shirts will be considered spirit wear and acceptable for students to wear on Fridays.

·      Please complete the order form that was sent home in folders and send cash or check made out to RHPTA by Friday, Nov. 4. The orders need to be returned to Ms. Blakley (5th grade) in Room 115.
