EVENTS ON GOING:
Our PAC is currently collecting donations for our Holiday Online Auction Fundraiser We invite any parents who may have a business and would like to donate an auction item or service they could provide, ex. RMT or CA; your contribution would be greatly appreciated. Each auction item will be posted individually with a detailed description and a hyperlink to the business’s Webpage. The proceeds will contribute to our on-going needs; such as improving and upgrading playground equipment, enhancing literacy programs, subsidizing an Artist in Residence, purchasing gym equipment and helping to fund ongoing technology upgrades. Our Holiday Auction will take place from Friday November 17th to Saturday November 24th.
On Wednesday December 20th 2017 the 6th Annual Kids- Only Christmas Shop will be open for business. This is a super fun event that allows the students to shop for their family members and loved ones. The gifts will range in price from $.25- $4 and will be wrapped and sent home with the students. They love picking out the ‘perfect’ gift and experiencing the joy of giving.
As we gear up for the festive season, this is a great time to donate some of your gently used items that you no longer need to the Kids-Only Christmas Shop. We are looking for all sorts of cool/unique items for moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandmas, grandpas etc. Books, movies, stuffed animals, toys, jewelry, mugs, frames, home décor….the options are endless.
Donations can be dropped off from now until Monday December 18th in the school foyer. Donations of Christmas wrap, ribbon and gift boxes are also needed.
We also need many volunteers to make this event a success so if you have a few hours to spare and want to be involved in this magical Kids-Only Christmas Shop please email Janet Boa (email@example.com).
Thank you for your support of this great event!
