Holiday Gift Shop – call for volunteers

During the week of Dec. 12, School Council will be hosting the Holiday Gift Shop. This year, the Gift Shop will run from Tuesday Dec. 13 to the morning of Thursday December 15 during school hours. All students from Grade 1 through to Grade 3 are invited to participate.

For those who are not familiar with the Holiday Gift Shop, it is a program which enables children to purchase their own special holiday gifts for family and friends with assistance fro volunteers. We have held the Gift Shop for 5 years, and it is always an incredible success! The children really enjoy the independence of being able to choose their own gifts for their family. Notices should be sent out by homeroom teachers within the next week. Teachers should also notify parents of their particular class’ shopping date and time.

This program cannot be successful without the help of volunteers. Although we will be assisted by some Grade 7 and 8 students, I still need parent volunteers to help with the cash boxes and to work one on one with the children to manage their money and show them potential gifts in their price range. If you have any time available, and would like to help, please contact Catherine Roberts . We’ll be running the Gift Shop all day during Tuesday, Wednesday, and the morning of Thursday.
