I am ordering shoes, leotards and jazz pants in different sizes so the girls can try them on after the banquet.
Executive decision-instead of the blue and red leotards I want to order the team good beige leotards with adjustable straps. So you will not recieve the blue or red leotard but the better beige instead. With the difference ($8) I am going to purchase the team black sports bras and a tank top for practice.
Ever loyal to old H-J all the livelong day,
She's better than the rest,
Just watch us fight, oh, say, oh yes, we're fighting.
For, we're loyal to old H-J, grand old team have we.
Fight fellows, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT and win the victory!
And when the year is over,
God bless our school,
We've done our best to mind the Golden Rule.
We are always rooting, as you all know,
For old H-J HIGH SCHOOL, we love you so!
