Missing things?

Parents… Did you know Penny Road has a Lost & Found? Has your child lost a sweatshirt? A jacket? A lunchbox? All of these items can be found on hooks in the cafeteria? There are so many items, that we are running out of hooks! In just a few weeks time, these items will be donated to Goodwill Community Fund. Please make a visit to the cafeteria and claim your child’s lost articles.
