Lost and Found - Please check before January 13

We have an abundance of lost and found items that need to be claimed.  If your child is missing anything, please come to our first floor outside the cafeteria and peruse the gigantic pile of coats, hats, gloves, lunch boxes, and other items.  Because storing so many items is a fire hazard and could cause an insect infestation, we will be sending all clothing left in the lost and found to Purple Heart on January 13.  We appreciate your support and hope you find your missing items.
