Missing Ripstick

Someone “borrowed” Ethan Carroll’s blue Ripstick (skateboard-like thing) from the school playground while he was at u12 soccer practice on Thursday on September 22. It was on the premises at 4:30, but it was gone by 5:45. Thankfully, his helmet was left untouched. Although the ripstick does not have his name on it, it does have lots of stickers. Ripsticks are not a common item, and easy to spot. If “found” please return it to Camille’s 5th grade class or the school office, no questions asked. Thanks.
