College Park PTA School Store Open Again!

Hi College Park Families!  Happy New Year!

We hope you are having a fantastic winter break, and are enjoying the last few days before school resumes.  Just wanted to let you all know that the College Park Elementary Spiritwear Store is open again, and will be open from January 1st – 20th.  College Park earns cash back for every purchase so this is a great way to support our school!  Friendly reminder that this year, we have been opening up the store in waves, and that all orders will be shipped out at the end of the current wave.  If you don’t place your order by the 20th, you will have to wait until the next wave to buy your spiritwear, so don’t delay!

This year, the theme is “Your Future Is Key, Who Will You Be?”
Please encourage your children to talk about who they want to be in the future and what they need to do to get there. You can learn more about the history of Red Ribbon Week by following this link:
