Lost & Found

Our lost & found is growing rapidly! Does anything belong to you?

Come pick it up before or after school in the multipurpose room.

We are in need of 4-6oz Dixie cup-style cups for our sharks! When they get thirsty and have forgotten their water bottles, these come in handy! You can drop them off at the front office.
