T-shirt reminder: Please do not forget that your team must wear shirts all three days of the olympics! The primary color of the shirt must be your team’s color, and the shirts must include team name (Country) and grade somewhere on them; design and anything else is up to you! Please encourage your students to wash their shirts each night, as they will likely be sweaty, and please don’t hesitate to contact us (Lucas Johnston, Austin Elliot, Destiny Goode, or Allison Glenn) if you have any questions!
