The Lost & Found is overflowing with lost items begging to be reunited with their owners! Please take a moment to look through the assorted items that have been turned in to see if there is anything there that belongs to your child. Chances are they may not event know that their sweatshirt, lunch box, water bottle, keys, notebook, pencil case, umbrella, jacket, etc. is missing.  Items will be displayed out in front of school Monday through Friday next week. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity after school on Friday, February 28th.

Parents can give their child a special Semester Shout Out by purchasing a slide on the electronic marquee which is mounted on the gym wall facing the parking lot.

Deadline to purchase a Shout Out is TODAY, Friday, February 21st.

The marquee will then boast your child's name with your choice of one of the five (5) notes of kindness/gratitude available to choose from for up to five (5) days after your purchase.

The cost is $20.00, and proceeds go to the ASB Scholarship Fund to assist students in need with their dance tickets, Yearbook purchase, 8th grade Disneyland ticket, etc.

Here's how to do it:

1. Complete the Shout Out form located on our website homepage.
2. Make your payment with Vetha in the Administration Building, or you can make your payment on our Online Webstore.

Shout Out slides will run through February 28th.
