Lost and Found
Lost and found articles are kept on the bench outside the Main Office, except for small items which are kept inside the office. Please label all clothing and personal items with your student's name.
Several times a year unclaimed items are donated to charity. Before collecting unclaimed items for donation, we will make an announcement reminding students to check lost and found for missing items.
We encourage students not to bring items of significant value to school. If it is necessary for your student to carry valuable items to school, the items may be stored temporarily in the Main Office during the school day.

If you have a student that is out for a fall sport or is planning to participate in one of our winter or spring sports we need your help. South East Jr. High is responsible for cleaning the south end zone of Kinnick Stadium this coming Sunday morning, 9/9. We need all athletes, parents and coaches on hand in order to get this done in a timely manner. Gates open at 7:00 AM. We are usually done by 8:15. If you have a gas leaf blower we encourage you to bring it with you. The more blowers we have the better job we do and the sooner we are done. If you do not have a blower, report to the concourse under the west stands to get brooms and bags. We encourage recycling of all cardboard and plastic items. There are recycling bags available in the west concourse. Please start at the top of the stadium and work down. Move all waste materials to an aisle and then clean the aisles from the top down. All bags of garbage and recyclables should be moved to the concourse area. South East is responsible for the entire south end zone so please stay until we are all done. This a major athletic fundraising activity for South East. The money that we receive helps pay for athletic uniforms and equipment for all sports. Thanks in advance for your help. See you Sunday morning.
