Other Announcements: 

Prom pictures are ready to be viewed and purchased.  If you are interested in purchasing photos, please go to http://www.shutterfly.com/pro/ClarksonCreative/LittletonProm  and you may purchase directly from the website.

If you attended prom and used the coat check, could you please check to make sure you took the correct items home.  There are currently 2 missing items and we think someone took home the wrong piece of clothing, which means they didn't take home theirs.

The first is a rental tuxedo jacket.  It is black, and it's a Calvin Klein jacket.  This would have been on ticket # 77 or 78.  We have your jacket, which has pinstripes on it.

The second is a pair of womens shoes.  These are blue with beads on the toe.  The pair that we have is the same shoe, but in black, not blue.

Please check what you took home from prom, and if you have either of these items, the jacket or the shoes, please get in touch with Mr. Saliman so we can get these items back to their owners (the jacket, especially, so someone isn't charged for losing it).
