Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, and Staff,
The second SCHS Bookstore through Eastbay is now opened from today through August 7th--these items will arrive the week after school begins. Each month we will have the flash store open for the first week of the month so you can buy your items if need be.
We have heard a few people asking PAB about the Under Armour sponsorship and we wanted to take the time to explain directly. Under Armour has agreed to sponsor us through Eastbay as a the middle group. This sponsorship has meant that we get 40% off of the prices of the underarmour gear that we order, in addition to 5% back to the school at the end of the year. The more we buy, the more we can get free next year. Since this is the beginning of our relationship with Under Armour they want to see how much we are able to purchase since they typically do not sponsor small schools. In regard to the prices that you are seeing in the store, these are not clearance items or items that would be found in the outlet, but are full price products through under armour. The performance polo for example is actually a full price $59.99 polo before embroidery that we have worked out to be $38.99 including embroidery--so as you can see, the prices are the absolute best we can get considering the quality. It is not mandatory to buy the items, but we are offering this as an option since many of the students complained that they wanted "cooler" uniform items and polos specifically. We hope this clarifies all questions regarding the prices and the sponsorship.
As a reminder, the colorblock polo is only for the seniors while the performance polo is for all grades. As sizes run out, Eastbay replenishes over night so you may see some sizes missing.
The link for the new store is: http://www.eastbayteamshop.com/Flyer/66264aa6-041f-4226-a1f7-0ddbb8bcb79f
Thank you and God Bless! We hope to see you tomorrow for the clean up.
