2017 HOMECOMING BUTTONS AND T-SHIRTS WILL BE FOR SALE! 

Homecoming buttons are for sale in the office this week, and will be sold before morning meeting the week of homecoming.

You can pre-order your shirts this week! Use the link that was emailed in the most recent update to reserve your shirts, or stop by the bookstore this week to pre-order. Then come by the store next week to pay and pick them up. The shirts are $17, and all have the same image on them. We have two colors available for adult sizes, and two colors for kid sizes – see sample photos:

HS Student Council will also be at morning meetings next week to sell homecoming buttons (see what those look like in the image on the right) and shirts, and will be accepting small cash donations for ASB. If you would like to participate or assist with High School Homecoming by donating supplies or dance snacks,  please contact Vanessa Shepherd (vshepherd@sloclassical.org) and she will update you on our current wishlist! 

Can’t remember our Grizzly Fight Song? Here’s a video made by SLOCA High School graduate Josh Ronda, with the song (lyrics are below):

 

SLOCA Fight Song

Do you know what the ancients say?
Search for truth and beauty, too
We seek wisdom every day
To grow in virtue through and through

Stand and fight with me
We’ll have a grizzly victory
Fly that banner high
Join our battle cry
SLOCA, SLOCA is our home
We will stand in unity
Some say all roads lead to Rome
But we will make new history!

We will learn our whole lives long
Building our ability
Facing battles, we are strong
In courage and humility!

Stand and fight with me
We’ll have a grizzly victory
Fly that banner high
Join our battle cry
SLOCA, SLOCA is our home
We will stand in unity
Some say all roads lead to Rome
But we will make new history!
We will make new history!

 

We look forward to a sensational week full of SLOCA Spirit!
