Thanks for your patronage at our sneak peek of the AIS Spirit Store at Back to School Night. You received special sale prices, plus an additional 10% off. Some other items are in transit and will arrive soon. But you may submit pre-orders here. Be on the lookout for a separate email and future Flash update with more Spirit Store information.

We will sell this Spirit "Swag" on site, once a month, on the days we host our morning coffees. So come visit the lobby next Thursday, September 5th from 8:30 - 9:30 am to get more goodies as you make your way to the Head of School Coffee. If pre-ordered items have arrived by then, you may pick them up Thursday. If those items are still in processing, we will arrange a time for pick-up or have them at the following month's sale. Sale price will continue through September.
