Class T-shirts - Order Now!!!  Deadline is Monday, September 9, 2013

Now that our students are in 9th grade, students in each grade (9th-12th) design and vote on their class t-shirts. The 9th grade Class of 2017 tshirt was created by Dane Nakama, and is now available to order for you and your family...this year, our shirts will be ash gray crewneck t-shirt with red center stripe, white and black stripes on front and center of gray shirt.  Order forms were sent by the 9th grade advisors to each freshman.  Parents should have also received an email with order form.  Because Homecoming is so early this year, the time frame to order is very short and deadline will not be extended.

Be sure to turn in the order form by MONDAY, September 9 to either Mr. Bonning or Profe Preston in I-204.

Please also see order form at the bottom of the page. 


For 9th grade there are generally three activities that we are involved with and need your assistance.

 - Family Picnic gathering followed by Frosh Sleepover (October 24-25)
 - Parent Only event (but this can also be a Family event) - to be determined

We are also looking for people who are interested in co-chairing any of these events.
