Lost & Found

As the seasons change, our Lost & Found starts to grow! We already have some sweaters, jackets, and hoodies in the Lost & Found. The children take their layers off as they are running around the school yard at recess but forget to get them when the bell rings. If the child's name is on the sweater, we can return it to him or her. However, many articles do not have a name on the tag so they are sent to the office. Please remind your child to check the office for any missing items. The children are expected to be responsible for their belongings! Thank you!
