Hey guys and gals. This monograph is about Slinger High School’s very own: The Rookery. This year’s lineup for staff members are: Mrs. Smessaert as the Lead Supervisor, Alex Drifka, Joshua Roddy, Anna Richardson, Emily Becker, and Owen Zaskowski as acting Managers.  For all you freshman out there, let me tell you about The Rookery. The Rookery is a school based store where students are given the opportunity to work in a modern-business environment. It basically provides you with local apparel and merchandise. So many goods to purchase, but what’s for sale? You will find an item that can go under 3 categories: Hardware, Apparel, and Snacks.


Your purchase options for hardware items are as follows: there are water bottles, car decals, mugs, and pint glasses.


For clothing, The Rookery has got the whole family covered from the summer to the winter.  Your options are sweatshirts, T-shirts, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, and athletic wear.

They also include beanies, scarves, and socks.


I bet you crave a good chocolate chip cookie every once in awhile, right? Well are you in luck! Otis Spunkmeyer’s chocolate chip cookies are currently available at the Rookery. They are baked fresh every ninth hour. Other snacks include fruit gummies, gum, mints and a variety of chips. To drink they have water bottles and gatorade.


Now, for the most important part of the article, is the new findings in The Rookery. The hardware is updated with new onesies for babies, sherpa blankets, and new brand apparel by Jordan.  They also have long chairs and stuffed owls. For snacks they now offer Uncrustable sandwiches and Capri-sun juice pouches.
