A Gift from Us...

Melissa and Ashley want you to know

that you're wonderful in many ways.

To make the next three weeks a little sweeter

enjoy jeans on two extra days.

You can be outfitted in jeans

with only one day to pay.

Tuesdays and Thursdays

means jeans every day.

We wish you wonderful memories

and we want you to know

That we are grateful for all you do

and for doing it all to ensure our students grow.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Melissa and Ashley
