Wow! It is already getting cold outside! We want to make sure everyone is dressing for the weather.
Parents, it would also be helpful if you would label your children’s clothing (mitts, tuques, sweatshirts). The Lost and Found box is already heaping full and we want to know who to return the clothing to. Thank you!
