The Washington and Highland PTOs (Parent Teacher Organizations) have been working on a project to help boost “Pirate Pride” in the Crookston Public Elementary Schools.

Each student in Kindergarten – 6th grade received a free Pirate Pride t-shirt.

Generous community members donated over $3000 so that the shirts could be purchased and printed! The shirts were given to students at the end of April and school pictures were taken. Students are invited to wear their new shirts for “Pirate Pride Fridays”.
