Parents, please take note that items left in the Gause Lost and Found will be collected and donated to charity once a month beginning April 6. At the end of each month, we will bag and store for two weeks our students’ lost and found items and after two weeks, donate all lost and found items to a local charity. Please label your child’s clothing and ask your child to be sure not to leave any of their personal belongings on the playground. We also ask that you check the lost and found on a regular basis.

Gause Boosters needs Volunteers!
The Gause Boosters have many great activities for our students planned for the 2014-2015, and we look forward to these enrichment activities, which make our school a fun and exciting place for students! But to put all of these activities on, the Boosters need help! Parents, grandparents, or other guardians are asked to download this form, and let the Boosters know what activities you might be interested in helping with. Forms need to be turned in at least 2 weeks before you can volunteer, as all volunteers are run through the District background check process. Thanks for helping us provide these great activities for our students!
