 Notes from the School Nurse
The nurse's clothing closet is in great need of gently used boys clothing and new boys underwear in sizes 6-8. She greatly appreciates any donations you can make. Additionally, if you could send in a change of weather appropriate clothing for your students we would greatly appreciate it. There are many accidents that can take place during the kindergarten school day, not just bathroom accidents and students are most comfortable when they are able to change into his or her own clothes.
We have Rider Pride gear back in stock!
