The PTSA is pleased to announce that it will be selling Fightin’ Pigeon t-shirts and hoodies.

This year we are able to offer t-shirts in various colors including, black, red, royal blue, green, teal, yellow and purple.  T-shirts are available in several sizes and with a “girl” cut style.  You can also choose to add your art strand (either dance, music, theater, or visual arts) and class year.

Hoodies will be available in gray and with the same option to add your art strand and class year.

We will begin taking pre-orders for the t-shirts and hoodies during lunchtime in the lobby of the high school tomorrow, Tuesday, September 23, 2014.  Because of the various options on the t-shirts and hoodies, at this time we are only able to offer the t-shirts and hoodies through pre-sales.  We also will have sample shirts and hoodies available to see for sizing.

We will also be taking orders at the Open House on Monday, September 29, 2014.

The order form will also be available to download from our website at  Or you can email Lisa Lauck at and request an order form.

T-shirts are $15 and Hoodies are $35.  Payment must be made at the time the t-shirts and hoodies are ordered as all orders are custom.

Thank you so very very much to all of our fabulous families who have sent in their membership fees and donations. Your financial contributions and show of support to the NWSA high school community are truly appreciated.
