The holidays are near, and as a special service to our students, we are hosting a Holiday Shop. Children will have the opportunity to pick out their own inexpensive, high quality gifts for family and friends during school hours. The Holiday Shop is designed to be a safe, child-centered environment where children can learn how to budget and spend wisely, while they also experience the gift of giving.
The Holiday Shop will be open during school hours December 7th through December 11th. Please visit your child’s teacher’s blog to see which day your child’s class will be shopping. Gifts range from 25cents to $5.00. All gifts will be wrapped or placed in gift bags.
The store will also be open from 11:00am to 1:00pm during the Gingerbread Bazaar on Saturday, December 12th, but inventory will be limited to what is left in stock.
If your child will be shopping, please fill out the budget form. Budget forms are being sent home with each child or may be found HERE. Place the form and CASH in an envelope or plastic zip baggie clearly marked “Holiday Shop” and your child’s name and teacher’s name, and return it to your child’s teacher.
The Holiday Shop is still in desperate need of volunteers. We need many volunteers to assist the younger students with shopping and to help with gift wrapping. At this time, we do not have even half of the needed volunteers. SIGN UP HERE TO VOLUNTEER.
