REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!
We are going to be collecting any previously worn 8th grade promotion robes for this year’s ceremony.
The largest part of the PTSA budget for the promotion ceremony goes towards robes.
We are hoping to help to conserve financial resources and reduce waste by reusing robes that are in good shape. If you have any questions please contact either-
Denise Glasco- firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a robe that you would like to contribute to the cause please just bring it to the office.
Thank you very much!
