**PTC**

Hi Freshman Parents! It was a pleasure to meet many of you at orientation last Tuesday and again, welcome to the Bulldog family! We are grateful for your purchase of spirit wear and we are looking forward to the support it will bring to the students and staff. Unfortunately, some of that spirit wear has a typo on it (the grey hoodie that says 'Vacaville Bulldogs'- Bulldogs has 3 L's in it) and we did not realize the error until 34 of them had been sold. We hired a new printer this year, and he is working diligently to get those reprinted for you. If you were one of the parents affected by this, please email PTC and we will make arrangements to get that swapped for you as soon as the new hoodies arrive (hopefully within the week). Our email is vacahighptc@gmail.com. We apologize for the Inconvenience that this created, but we promise to make it right. Thank you again for your support!

Becky Johnston, PTC President
