Happy March MVES Families!


PLEASE take some time next during Parent Teacher Conferences to look through the Lost and Found clothing rack AND the boxes beneath the racks..... please!!


Helpful Hint: Please write your child's name in their jacket, coat, sweatshirts...... if your child's name is inside the item of clothing, it will GREATLY increase the chances of the clothing making it back home where it belongs.
