Middle School PE Uniforms

Middle School Parents it is time to start thinking about ordering your students PE uniforms.

All middle school students are required to wear Baymonte shorts and shirts during their PE class. PE uniforms need to be purchased via the school website.  PE uniforms are available for purchase until August 14th.  Please keep in mind it might be good to have two sets of PE uniforms: one that can be worn at school while the second set is at home being washed.

Students will receive their purchased uniforms the first week of school from the PE coaches.
