Spirit Wear

Spirit Wear Now Available Online!!!!

Now there’s a new way to buy Dilworth Spirit Wear! We’ve just launched our new online store at http://dilworthspiritwear.com, which will give parents continuous access to a greater variety of items and sizes than ever before!

New items include gray hoodies, green t-shirts, baseball hats, women’s-fit t-shirts and more! New items will be added periodically, so check the online store frequently.

Please bear with us as we transition to online ordering. Eventually, all spirit wear orders will be processed online, but during this transition, some apparel items will be online and other items need to be ordered using this form. Spirit Wear Order Form

Please be aware that we are very low on youth sizes of our ever-popular blue/green tie-dye t-shirts. Our custom tie-dye supplier went out of business and we are working with our new online store to get these made.

Deadlines for holiday purchases
Online orders must be placed by Tuesday, Nov. 24.
Items ordered using the old order form must be turned in by Friday, Dec. 11.

Please remember that most apparel is available for holiday purchases ONLINE ONLY. After the holidays, online orders will be continuously received and processed and should be delivered to your child’s homeroom teacher within two weeks.

We WILL continue to sell spirit wear at many school events as well.

Our new online spirit wear store is owned and operated by a CMS family. If you have any questions, please contact Rosie Rogers at rosie@thisthatandmore.com, Melissa Utsey at Melissa.utsey@gmail.com or Tracy Harrison at tharrison99@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support as we make this exciting change to our spirit wear program.
