Attention juniors and seniors, Tuxedos to Geaux will be coming on campus the Wednesday after the Mardi Gras break to fit students for tuxedos for the upcoming proms. This service is an awesome way to save money. The cost of the tuxedo is $169 but it is a purchase and not a rental. Therefore, as a junior, if you purchase one, you will have it for senior year and save yourself the rental fee. Information will be sent out to the parents this week.


It is that time of the year - Slam-n-Jam time. Holy Cross has taken home the trophy two years in a row and look to make it three. HC has five team slots available. Cost to form a team is $100 plus the cost of the shirts. See Mr. Ferry for more information. The teams are on a first come first serve basis so whoever turns in their forms and money first gets the slot.
