Spirit wear is in…and we’re placing one more order!

If you ordered spirit wear at Open House or anytime before then, it was distributed to your students’ classrooms on Monday, Oct. 2! We will be placing another order this month, so if you want some cool Dowell gear, please fill out this form and submit (with payment) to the PTA mailbox ASAP!

If you purchased a Dive Pack or Jr. Dive Pack membership package and did not order spirit wear at the time of purchase, remember you have $12 to spend toward spirit wear! We will be sending you an email reminder this week to turn in your order.
