Uniform Swap - Mark your calendars!

Saturday, April 30 from 10:00am-12:00pm

Bring gently used, like-new condition uniform pieces to swap. Remember these items will be worn, as new, by other students. Please launder all items beforehand, and cull any stained, painted, or ripped clothes; those cannot be incorporated into the swap.

We are not able to accept uniform items ahead of the swap; please hang onto them until then. If you are not able to attend, you may drop acceptable items, bagged at the front of the school at 3:00pm or later on Friday, April 29. They will remain there until the start of the swap on Saturday, April 30.

Thank you!
