The success of the Spirit Store and Heard
Logo clothing has been phenomenal!
We appreciate everyone's patience as we try to develop a process to meet the unexpected quantity of orders. Order forms will be sent out soon that will include a monthly deadline date for all orders. New orders will then be submitted to our local vendor on a monthly basis. Temperatures are going to start getting colder! It's time to order sweatshirts! There are also Heard Academy co ee mugs that would make great holiday gifts!
