SPIRIT WEAR & YEARBOOK QUESTIONS

How can I purchase spirit wear?

 

Visit our spirit wear store when it opens to place an order!

Can I buy spirit wear when the spirit wear store is closed?

 

Maybe. Spirit wear is only available for a limited time at the beginning of each year. This allows us to keep the cost of each item lower. However, if you are interested in purchasing spirit wear at another time, please let us know, and we will check to see if we have enough interest to “reopen” the spirit wear store.

When can I buy a yearbook?

 

The yearbooks are available for ordering the all school year on the Tree Ring website. A promotional price is usually available at the beginning of every year.

When will I get my yearbook?

 

There is no set delivery date, but yearbooks are usually distributed to students at the end of each school year.
