Lost and Found -- Bursting at the Seams!

Has your child lost a water bottle, a sweatshirt, or perhaps a pair of shoes? The school's lost and found collection has reached its usual crazy end-of-year volume. The numbers speak for themselves: 73 sweatshirts, 57 jackets, 26 hats, 47 shirts. 14 water bottles, 17 socks, and more....

Mrs. Carey and Mr. Gissendanner's 4th grade math class recently put their skills into practice by categorizing the lost and found items and researching their replacement cost. While the estimated totals vary from $3,000 to over $5,000, the staggering item count is the same: over 350 items in total! To reiterate one 4th grader's observation, that is almost one item of lost and found for each student in the school.

Please take a moment this week to check the lost and found and claim anything that belongs to your family. Anything left unclaimed at the end of the year will be donated.
