  • Uniform Swap

    Posted by Siobhan Murphy on 6/9/2019 9:30:00 AM


    Our uniform swap is NOW OPEN!

    Organized by the PTO, we already have a terrific inventory of gently used uniform items that will be on display in the ground floor hallway of the main school building beginning on Monday morning.  

    All are welcome to take as many items as you are able to use for your family next year.  All items are completely FREE!  Donations are NOT required to participate in the swap!  All families, including incoming ECP families, are most welcome to participate.

    If you have items to donate, please leave them in the bins that in the basement hallway marked "Place Donations Here."  PTO volunteers will sort them and add them to the items on display for others to take.  Please do not donate items that are ripped, stained or are heavily worn.  

    You are welcome to visit the swap anytime that the school building is open.  If you are unable to visit the swap during school hours, before school or after school, please contact the PTO or Mrs. Flynn to make arrangements.

    In order to facilitate the swap, students will not be required to wear uniforms beginning on Monday, June 10.  See the separate blog post on attire for the final week of school.

    Please contact PTO@stjosephschoolwakefield.org with any questions about the uniform swap.
