Centennial T-shirts

Yes! PTA is finally ready to take your order for the Centennial T-shirt designed by 5th grader Diego Dela Cruz!

Profits from the sale of this shirt will go into a Centennial Fund. The Centennial Fund will be used to make a lasting gift to the school: to finish refurbishing and beautifying the blacktop garden area so that it can be used by our students for science and nature lessons and by our community for events.

T-shirts are solid dark grey with green design, and available in short sleeve, long sleeve, and hooded sweatshirt. Be sure not to miss out on this special-edition T-shirt, which will only be offered this year.
