If you think you ordered a yearbook last September, you didn’t. Books were just added to the PTO Web Store last week. Reserve a copy for your student(s) before March 1st and you’ll save $5. $20 gets you a hardcover book and souvenir pen. Distribution is during the Ice Cream Social at the end of May. Order on the PTO Web Store today! Don’t forget to save your confirmation email from the PTO Web Store so you can quickly confirm your order when “end of the school year” panic sets in!
