**From SHARE...

  • The inaugural LANCER BOWTIQUE will be open next Thursday, Jan. 24th immediately after school in the choir room. Come check out gently--or NEVER--worn items swapped by the SME community. Take them home and make them your own! WPA is around the corner and you never know what you'll find--the perfect dress, shoes, belt, tie. Items so great they deserve another wear! Additional formal wear contributions will be collected through Tuesday, so go through your closets this weekend and drop them off to share in the main entry. (modern & teen-appropriate wear only, PLEASE!)  lancer.bowtique2.pdf

And remember, it's always a great day to be a Lancer!
