- If you purchase any items at Office Depot, kindly tell the clerk to credit our Center. We are listed on their forms as "Our Lady Classical." Please make sure your purchases are NOT credited to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy.
If you are interested in selling your gently used, outgrown uniforms, please bring them at 6:30 P.M. before the parent meeting on August 28th to lay them out on tables. Please pin a small envelope to the item with your full name (for those writing checks), the amount you’d like to charge, a description of the item, and size. Example:
$6 boy’s blue shirt size: large youth
The buyer will insert the amount you request and leave the envelope with payment in a box or manila envelope you provide with your name on it. This will work best if you bring lots of five and one dollar bills with you to use as payment. You can shop for items among other sellers and then check your box/envelope before the meeting starts or after it ends.
