Calling all students who may have lost something during the fall! Items from the lost and found bins will be creatively displayed – it will be EASY to come take a quick look and claim what is yours! All unclaimed items will then be donated to Cradles to Crayons.
The Green Committee also strongly recommends labeling items (identamelabels.com, mabelslabels.com, etc). If items are labeled, Park's Grade V class generously goes through the L&F weekly to return labeled items to their owners! This program has been a GREAT success and will only improve as labeling of clothing, water bottles, and other items increases!
