REMIND ME WHAT’S FOR LUNCH?

November Menus / Breakfast / Lunch

Please be sure to remind your kids to DRINK MORE WATER as a daily habit and to fill up your bottles at lunch using the refill bottle station in the cafeteria.

REMEMBER TO CHECK LOST AND FOUND

Please stop by or have your child go look for missing items! Anything that goes unclaimed, will be donated the last week of October! Remember to write names inside garments and articles with school and grade – we return these items to students when we know who they belong to, names really help and school with grade labels are extra! Nearly a 100% guarantee to get items returned with all information – a sharpie works great on the tag.
Lost & Found is located in the main lobby.
