LOST AND FOUND
Booker T.'s lost and found is in the copy room on the first floor, and parents are welcome to check the bin or on the shelves at any time. Anything not claimed will be gotten rid of on the last Friday of every month. Please remember to have I.D. with you when you come to school!
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
