PTA NEWS
Vineyard Vines Shopping Night
Do you need to check off a few items from your holiday shopping list?  This is the event for you!  Vineyard Vines is hosting Corinth for a 10/10 Shopping Event.  What's that mean to you?  It means you can visit Vineyard Vines on the Plaza on Wednesday, November 28 from 6pm - 8pm and get 10% off of your entire purchase.  In turn, Vineyard Vines will give 10% back to Corinth.  It's a win/win and a great way to get some holiday shopping done while giving back to our school (and you get a small discount along the way too!). If you have any questions about the event, contact  Lindsay Peattie.
