SJV 15th Anniversary T-Shirt Orders

SJV is celebrating our 15th anniversary this year, and we have special edition spirit t-shirts to commemorate the occasion.  These t-shirts can be worn on Spirit Fridays, to athletic events, or anytime you want to show your Wildcat school spirit.  This will be a one-time order.  Not a fan of these shirts?  Don’t worry!  All new spirit t-shirts and hoodies have been ordered for the spirit shop in the school office.  We’ll let you know when they arrive.  In the meantime, you can check out samples of the anniversary tees in the office.  But don’t delay!  We are only taking orders through November 15.
