Lost & Found
It's that time of year when children are wearing jackets and sweaters in the morning and shedding them in the afternoon. Please be sure to LABEL all your
children's items that they wear or bring to school. If they wind up in lost and found we are able to return them. On December 19th all unclaimed items
in Lost and Found will be donated to a needy cause. We will be donating unclaimed items the last Friday of every other month. The lost and found is located
in the cafeteria on the stage.
Double the Fun at our Double Share Night
A wonderful time was had by all at both Red Elephant and Nuberri locations. It was a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving Holiday break by spending
an evening with family and friends. View Photos »
