Label Your Winter Clothing

It's that time of year where our Lost and Found begins to overflow with sweatshirts, jackets, coats, mittens, etc.... Please make sure you are labeling your child(ren)'s cold weather gear with their first and last name (teacher helps, but not a must). Our lost and found is located in the old gym as soon as you walk in the double doors. You are welcome to go through it at any time.

*While teachers try to help students remember their clothing, but it is not their responsibility to keep up with those items.

**If your child is in need of a coat, we most likely are able to help with that. Please send a note to your child's teacher.
