The cost if just $20 per day and there is a limit of only five personalized messages each day.

The purchase price will go towards the activities and enhancements for our school that are paid for by the PTA.  There is a 2-line maximum and the form has to be filled out two weeks in advance.

The announcement will "shine" for one day.  Forms for "Shine on the Sing" can be picked up from the office.
