Virtual Lost & Found

Thanks to Amanda Taillon, our parent volunteer coordinator, and a number of other volunteers, we now have a virtual lost and found box.  CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE to see what was most recently found at WOM, then come on down and pick it up from the large wooden box outside of the main gym and library doors.  It is just that simple.  Volunteers will update the contents with pics as needed either  once or twice per month. There is some very valuable clothing in there!
