The Junior class is having a fundraiser to defray class costs of various upcoming expenses. (Prom, next years class gift, etc..)

If you noticed the cost of senior apparel from th other company was quite expensive and didn't have anything that made it Fairless.  Our apparel is unique and Fairless specific.

Cost of each item is as follows:

Short sleeve t-shirts are $20

Long sleeve t-shirts $25

Hoodies $35

I am attaching the image that will be on shirts and the link to the website where you can make purchases.  The sale will end NOVEMBER 23 and items should be here by November 10th.  You can choose to have them delivered directly to you or to the High School.  If you have them shipped to you that do take a few more days and it does cost extra.  

If you have questions please ask me asap!
