Moms and Dads! Have you noticed your child's wardrobe get smaller over the last few months?
Perhaps your son or daughter has misplaced a favorite jacket, or sweatshirt, or sweater, or hat, or gloves, or water bottle, or something else.
There is a good chance your stray item was lost at school and is currently waiting to be reunited with you. Come visit Lost and Found and see if you can find a missing item.
Hurry! Any items remaining at the end of the school year will be donated to a charitable organization.

Recycle with us at the Ranch.

LEARN HOW HERE
PTA has partnered with TerraCycle to start a number of Recycling Programs at our school.
From now on, instead of tossing items into the trash, bring them to school to earn Terracycle Points for our school. TerraCycle points are redeemable for up-cycled products, charitable gifts or payment to our school. Think of it as Win-Win situation.
The items collected will be sent to TerraCycle, an international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and re-purposes the material into affordable, innovative products, according to terracycle.com. Our program helps earn money for our school while keeping unnecessary amounts of trash out of our landfills.
