The form linked below reflects this update, too.*
Paper order forms went home last week and can also be downloaded and printed using the link below. We are offering 3 design options pictured below this year: an updated Twain Comets design, our Team Twain design for this year's building-wide theme, and our PBIS Mark Twain ROCKS design. The updated Comets logo comes on several colors, and there are many options and items to choose from for each design.
Order Forms and Payment (cash or check made out to Screen and Roll) must be turned in to school by this Friday, November 19th. This will ensure delivery before Christmas Break.
