August 2016 E-Blast

Dear Parents,

Our 2016-2017 school year is just about to begin, again summer break has flown by.  We are sad to say goodbye to our summer break but very excited to see our families again!

Just a friendly reminder on the uniform changes for the 2016/2017 school year.  NO plaid to include jumpers, skirts or skorts, no green or yellow polo shirts and no yellow peter pan blouses.  We have added heather gray as a polo shirt option and light blue boys dress shirts and girls peter pan blouses. The source code for French Toast is QS5JCKC (  This is a great way to look at our uniforms.  Remember you are not obligated to purchase uniforms anywhere specifically, as long as they look the same.  Elizabeth Walmart also carries our uniforms but could have some in inventory that is not our approved items.

Please mark your calendars:
