Lost and Found
During our conferences, the Lost and Found will be located in front of the Media Center. We have a large number of items that have been forgotten, so PLEASE SET ASIDE A FEW MINUTES to look through the items. It is always very helpful if a child’s name is labeled on possessions, including clothing. All lost and found items not picked up by 4PM on Wednesday, Nov. 28, will be donated to the DAV bin in our school parking lot.
