Hey Brook Ladies....Have you ever wondered what to do with those dresses you've only worn once? Well now you can make some room in your closet and help out your fellow Lady Wolverines at the same time. Student Council is sponsoring the first ever Homecoming Dress Swap Shop. Here's what you do...if you have a cocktail dress that you'd like to donate, bring it to Room 119 or Mrs. Rodriguez in the Front Office anytime between now and Homecoming; and then next week, if you'd like to attend the Homecoming Dance, but don't want to spend the money on a brand new dress, see Mrs. Rodriquez in the Front Office to choose one of the available dresses for free. We can't wait to see all of our lovely ladies dressed up for the big dance this year!
