Consider Donating Gently Used Clothing
Franklin's health o ffice needs gently used or new snowpants sizes 6-10, boots sizes 13-3, and mittens for playground snow fun. E lastic-waistband pants in larger sizes, such as 8-10, are also needed.  Thank you! 
Is Your Child's Missing Item Here?
Franklin's Lost and Found is double-decker and spans two hallways! Please stop in and see if your child is missing anything! It is probably there. In three weeks, on February 10, all items will be donated. Thank you.  

Randall's Lost and Found is getting full due to our wintry weather! We have a lot of single mittens and hats, even a couple winter coats. Please label all winter gear so we can return items to your child's locker. We also have bags of single mittens and gloves. Please email a picture of your single to tljaye@madison.k12.wi.us and we'll check for a match. 
Donate Your Gently Used Books
Randall will again be hosting a BookShare (in late February) where all Randall students will be invited to choose a few free books. Our goal is to collect 1400 books, and we need your help!

We need gently used books that appeal to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.

You can drop off your books in the Randall Library, between now and mid February.  

Questions? Please stop by the Randall Library or contact Michelle Reis at mmreis@madison.k12.wi.us   or 608-204-3310. Thanks for supporting our community of readers.
