Order your shirt online by selecting a size below:(Tie-dye t-shirts are preshrunk and may run slightly smaller than regular Mt. Mourne Spirit Wear t-shirts.)If you'd prefer, fill out this form, and bring form and payment to your club's teacher sponsor.
All clubs will use the same t-shirt, so if your student belongs to multiple clubs, you will only need one t-shirt.
Also, we will be using the same gold tie-dye t-shirt as last year, with a few logo updates to include new clubs, but if your child has a club t-shirt from last year, a new one is not required.
