Lost & Found Please check to see if you are missing any items! All will be removed to be given to Charity at the end of the day Thursday Nov. 10th. An effort is made to return items that are clearly labeled with last names, but the PTO is not responsible for lost items! Usually only the oldest unclaimed items are donated first, but due to the overwhelmingly large number of items, this has been too difficult to maintain. All items left at the end of the day Nov. 10 will be removed. If you have any questions contact Cindy Custer: email@example.com

People's Pantry Food Drive: Kyle Wood, our physical education teacher, in conjunction with the North Andover Youth Center is sponsoring a food drive during November. Encompassing the values of RAISE, Mr. Wood is visiting each grade and reading “Uncle Willie and the Soup Kitchen.” Additionally he has arranged for a member of the People’s Pantry to speak to the children of each grade about the food pantry. Brownie Troop 62102 has created signs detailing food assignments for each grade. Please see below for the items that we are hoping each grade can bring in:
Kindergarten – Canned cranberry sauce
1st Grade – boxed stuffing mix
2nd grade – canned gravy
3rd grade - canned vegetables (corn, carrots, green beans)
4th grade - instant potatoes/canned potatoes
5th grade – biscuit or cornbread mixes
Only non-perishables please. The food drive will end on the night of the Winter Carnival, November 18th. Food will be picked up on Monday, November 21st and will be delivered to the People’s Pantry to be distributed before Thanksgiving. Mr. Wood has set a goal for the community and hopes to collect 1,500 food items! Thank you!!!
