Spirit Wear Delivery and Pick Up on 9/10

Thank you to everyone for showing your Preston pride by purchasing the new 2020-21 Spirit Wear!  

On 9/10, spirit wear & face masks will be delivered to your child’s classroom for all in-person learners. 

If your child is an at-home learner, please plan to pick up spirit wear & face masks on 9/10 between 11:00-1:00.  A few volunteers will be set up along the gym side of the school (3rd-6th grade drop off/pick up side) ready to distribute spirit wear.

If you have not ordered your spirit wear or face masks, there’s still a limited supply available! Order here... once we sell out, we will not be placing another order for 2020-21. 

Any questions, please email Alison.
