Lost and Found

LOST and FOUND is GROWING and GROWING!  According to our PTA, there are about 50 items in our Lost & Found! That’s about ten items lost each week—about two items each day!  Please direct your kids to look for that lost jacket or lunchbox, or come in yourself to look.  The Lost & Found is located outside of Room 2.  Good luck!
