Lost and Found Needs Some Fixin’

And here’s how you can help!! Grab a Sharpie and LABEL your child’s clothes:

  • Coats
  • Sweaters
  • Lunch Boxes
  • Water Bottles
  • Hats
  • Gloves/Mittens/Scarves

with NAME and ROOM NUMBER. Or, you can also purchase labels from Name Bubbles (Put your child’s Name & Room Number in the Bubble and it will be easily seen).   These labels are dishwasher / laundry safe, waterproof and durable.  Better yet, PS3 receives 20% of all purchases if you use code: PS3PTA15 (all caps). If labelled, Lost and Found Volunteers will return your items to the classroom once a week.
