Gifford Eagles Apparel

In an effort to provide a wide variety of apparel and other items available to you at anytime during the year we have set up an online store at mylocker.net (link is on the right.)  At My Locker you can create t-shirts, polos, sweatshirts, etc...with various designs and logos to support your Gifford Eagles.  With this set up, we no longer need to send order forms home, collect money or distribute items through the school.  You can order personalized items for every activity your child is involved in or just general Eagle merchandise.  If you have any questions regarding the My Locker Store, please contact one of your Helping Hands Officers.
