UNIFORMS

Make sure your child comes back to school with a clean and tidy uniform (no rips and tears). Contact Donald’s Uniform Store if you need to purchase anything. If your child has outgrown pieces of the uniform, we are happy to take them to use as extras in the office. We are in need of new or used girl’s leggings and old uniforms (most-needed are LS boys pants and LS girls jumpers).
