A pair of tortoise shell framed eyeglasses were found after dance team night. They are a smaller frame so may belong to an elementary student. The glasses may be claimed at the middle school office.

Elementary Yearbooks - You can order an elementary yearbook for your child now through February 27th. The cost is $17.00. Checks should be made payable to Humboldt Schools or you can pay with cash. Some parents ordered these at registration in August. You can check your receipt or parent portal to see if you already have one on order. If you want to order online please contact your school's secretary to add the fee onto your child's account so you can make a payment online. This yearbook will include all elementary students from both Mease and Taft Elementary. They will be distributed later this spring.
