Message from Coach Moose
As we start the new school year I wanted to send out a reminder about appropriate shoes for PE class.  During the days when the students can dress down or dress up, they forget to bring their tennis shoes for PE class.  Due to a chance of increased injury, if a student does not have appropriate shoes, they will not be allowed to participate in class that day.  I appreciate your help!

COVID ~ If your student is displaying any COVID symptoms,
we ask that you keep them home and consult your pediatrician.  Many of these symptoms are similar to the common cold, and we know this can be inconvenient, but it is best to err on the side of caution.  We simply want to do what we can to help this year go smoothly.

Those orders will be printed and delivered between the 10th-12th of that month. There is potential of orders being printed sooner. Any questions regarding printing, sizing, delivery needs are to be directed to Evan’s Custom Apparel, jevanseca@gmail.com.
