The Adams PTA is happy to offer 5th grade signature shirts again this year.  These shirts are always very popular with our 5th graders!  Order forms went home with each member of the Class of 2018.  We do not order extra shirts so if your student wants one, now is the time to place your order.  

Shirts are available in a single-color tie dye look.  The available colors are red, blue and green.  

Each shirt cost $13.  Orders are due to school on Friday, September 1.

Additional order forms can be found here.
