The end of the year is coming quickly.  Here are some things to be thinking about as the year comes to a close. Please encourage your student clean out their lockers.  Students will do the initial cleaning of their locker this week and clean it out completely the second to last day of school.  Students should also check in with the library to see if they have any missing books or fines.  Lastly, the Lost and Found is very full.  If your child is missing anything, I would look there first.
