Wishing You and Yours a Joyous Holiday Season and a Happy, Healthy New Year!

Lost and Found

We have two lost and found locations: the Cafeteria and the Main Gym. There are currently many items in both locations. If your child is missing anything, please have him/her check the lost and found. In addition, we will have tables set up during Parent/Teacher Conferences so parents/guardians may check for lost items. After conferences, all unclaimed items will be donated. Thank you!
