Clothes Closet & Lost and Found
It’s that time of year where the Lost and Found has a lot of lost items!  Please look for any missing items the next time you are on campus. It is really important to label all items since our amazing PTA rep sorts and returns all items with labels.  

RRISD provides a Clothes Closet for students and families in need of clothes, undergarments, and coats.  At this time of year, they are in need of socks and underwear. We will have a clothing drive the week of December 9-13, so please drop off or send with your child any items you would like to donate.  Socks and underwear must be new and still in packaging.
