Lower Campus Used Uniform Closet - Have your kids outgrown their uniforms? Don’t forget that we have a used uniform closet!

Currently, we do not have any of the Academy logoed items (polo shirts, gym shirts/shorts/pants) as this is our first year with the new pieces, but we have an abundance of jumpers, skirts, skorts, and boys pants and shorts. Donations can be sent into the front desk at any time. Appointments to look through the closet can be made with Marta at mnissen@saintchrisacademy.org.

 

NEW! Upper Campus Used Uniforms - The upper campus is creating their own used uniform closet and is looking for donations from graduating 8th grade students...and any 7th grade students who have had a growth spurt and outgrown their current uniforms! The plan is to organize donations and offer them to upper campus parents in mid-July. Please send any donations to Mrs. Coker or email her at scoker@saintchrisacademy.org. Thanks!
