Did your child lose something?

Just a reminder to visit Lost and Found in the cafeteria when you can (PTA movie night- next Friday? ) to check and see if any of your student's jacket, sweater, or water bottle might be found? At the end of  the  school year they go to Goodwill.

School Library Books 📚 Reminder

A reminder from our librarian:  

The class library visits will be done for the year as of May 6 so I can start the end of year inventory and procedures.

This would be a good time to remind parents to be on the look out for any books that have the Marguerita Library stamp and barcode on them and return them to school.  It will help to minimize the Overdue Books Report for the end of year.

The last day to turn in overdue books will be May 10.  Parents will be billed the cost to purchase a replacement for any books not returned and students will not receive final report cards until the balance is paid.
