  • Jeans Passes/ $2 Tuesday

    PBIS team has a $2 Tuesday where students can purchase a free dress pass, once a month. Just as in jean passes, students can earn these through Bobcat Bucks and teacher rewards. When it is a "Free Dress" Tuesday, no other uniform passes will be sold. (No jean days that week- unless grade-level attendance reward.) Students may only purchase the passes the day before during their lunch period. No passes will be sold on the actual day.
