**Parents please note that our Lost and Found bin is full. We have put the items out on tables a few times for students to come and collect their belongings. There are still some winter clothes and jackets that have not been claimed. Anything that is not claimed by Monday June 10th 2013 will be donated to a local charity. Please remind students to check before this time to ensure they get their belongings back. Thank You! **
