Mark your calendars for varsity jacket night 5-8 p.m. May 23. Vendor representatives will be on site to assist with sizing and placing your order. Students will have the opportunity to try on jacket samples to determine their size; however, they should also wear or bring a hoodie for proper sizing. Anyone who has one or more varsity letters should bring them, but you may attach future letters later.

Any interested Vikings should order their jacket early, even as freshmen, so they can sport their jacket for longer. Students in alternative activities like marching band, theater, chorus or other nonathletic clubs are also welcome to order a jacket. You may only pay through cash, check or Venmo and not by credit cards. If you cannot attend varsity jacket night but would still like to place an order, email suzannemartinesposito@gmail.com or call 908-763-0890.

The ACCHS Morgan’s Message Club will hold a Menchie’s fundraiser 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. April 12 at the Cedar Point Menchie’s, 353 S. Cedar Crest Blvd., Allentown.
