The PAT is the Jackson Prep parent and teacher organization that serves as a vital support group for the school.  The Parent and Teacher Association at Jackson Prep was formed to bring a closer relationship between the home and school so that parents and teachers can collaborate effectively in the education and training of students.  The PAT’s annual fundraiser, Prep Fest, raises money for numerous classroom and campus enhancements as well as the school’s teacher endowment fund.  All Prep parents are automatically members of the PAT.

  • Swap Shop Details

    SWAP SHOP UNIFORM SALE

    The Jackson Prep PAT’s "Swap Shop” provides Prep families the opportunity to buy gently used Dennis school uniforms and Patriot Shop clothing items. Proceeds from the Swap Shop benefit the PAT and its projects supporting Prep, its students, and faculty.

    The Swap Shop holds three sales each school year. These are typically in August, December, and May. The Swap Shop operates over two days. The first day, Swap Shop Collection Day, is for turning in clean, size-labeled uniform items. A credit voucher will be given for accepted garments (CLICK HERE for an example of the voucher). The second day is the Swap Shop Sale, when parents or students can shop for uniforms and other Prep clothing items.

    The parent or student keeps the credit vouchers, not the Swap Shop. The Swap Shop will not maintain a list of vouchers awarded. Vouchers do not expire and can be transferred to a friend or new incoming family.

    Pricing examples: One credit voucher is worth $1. Boys’ and girls’ polo and Oxfordcloth shirts are 2 credits. Boys’ shorts are 2 credits and pants are 3 credits. Girls’ skirts and skorts are 3 credits. Unisex sweatshirts, jackets, and vests are 2 credits; hoodies are 3 credits; Pippers jackets are 5 credits. T-shirts and other Prep outerwear are welcome, but no credits are given for them.

    Swap Shop Collection DayGently worn and well cared for uniforms will be accepted. Uniforms should be labeled on the front of the garment with size and any alterations noted. (Please use masking tape. Do not use duct tape as it is difficult to remove and leaves a sticky residue on clothing.) No hangers. The Swap Shop reserves the right to refuse any item deemed unfit for resale.

    Swap Shop Sale DayPayment is by credit voucher, cash, or check (payable to Jackson Prep).
