Missing Sports Jerseys

As reported last week, The Case of the Missing Sports Jerseys remains open and active.  Although some sports jerseys have been found, others still remain at large.   Please help us in solving this case and returning the jerseys to their proper home – don’t let this case grow cold!

Description of missing articles:  sleeveless tank-top style sports jerseys; reversible blue & white mesh fabric; Hurricane logo on front; number on back.  Sizes vary.

Parents, if your child participated in any athletic activities this school year or the one previous, please, check your home for jerseys and return them to the Port Coquitlam Campus as soon as possible.  One jersey was reported to be found in a student’s smelly sports bag.

Please look anywhere and everywhere around your home.  They can be quite elusive.

While the jerseys remain at large, we cannot proceed with adding more sizes to our inventory.  Please help them all find their way back to the school and reunite them with their jersey family – they need each other.  And we need to process an order for more sizes before this school year is finished.

You may drop off jerseys to the Port Coquitlam Campus Monday-Friday between 8:30 am – 3:00 pm.  Please return a.s.a.p.
