Important Notes for This Week

1. Lost and Found

Since the beginning of the year, we have collected a lot of lost clothing and other items. The items are on display in our cafeteria, but we are running out of space. All items not claimed by November 30 will be donated to a local charity. Please remind your children to look through our lost items and claim anything that is theirs.

2. Principal Change December 1

During this two month period, we will also welcome Mr. John Taylor to Parkland MS as Visiting Principal. Currently, he is Principal of Winston Churchill High School. He will take the lead on 7th grade administrative duties during his time with us.
