Parent resources

Lost & found donated to charity

Several times during the school year, lost and found notices are sent home to make parents aware that the collection is growing and that everything remaining by a designated time will be donated to a children's charity. In addition to the notices sent home, reminders are also given during our daily announcements, and posted on the campus website and electronic kiosk. Often we'll include a phone message or two prior to the donation. Please be aware that this typically occurs around the December break, sometimes at Spring Break, and always at the end of the school year. Bigger items such as clothing and lunch boxes are kept in the lost and found area located just inside our gym doors. Smaller items like eye glasses, jewelry and keys are kept in the office. Parents and students are encouraged to check these areas frequently.
