ANNOUNCEMENTS

HOLIDAY WORKSHOP

The holiday workshop will be taking place this week! Classes will be shopping at the workshop from Tuesday Dec 1 - Friday Dec 4th. Forgot when your child is shopping? See the schedule below. Lost the permission to shop form? Click here for another copy. Need another shopping envelope? Extras will be available in the main office, OR you can use any envelope, just be sure to be as descriptive as possible in terms of the shopping list, and be sure to indicate whether or not your child has permission to shop for themselves. Here are a few tips to make your child's shopping experience go smoothly:


  • Go over their list with them and discuss with them some good ideas for each person on their list.
  • Be sure to include as much helpful information as possible on the shopping envelope -- siblings ages, likes and dislikes, specific requests (i.e. "no jewelry", or "likes sports", etc). This will help the volunteer shopping assistants that will be helping your child.
  • Indicate the maximum amount to be spent (can be per recipient, or maximum to be spent overall) on the shopping envelope, include money or check and then seal the envelope to send in with your child. Remember the permission to shop form does not go in the shopping envelope -- it should be sent in separately.
  • If you are paying by check, make the check out to Worcester Home & School and leave the amount blank. WE CANNOT GIVE CHANGE ON A CHECK! Simply write the maximum amount they can spend in the memo section of the check (or on the shopping envelope) and we will fill in the exact amount on the check when we ring up your child's items. We will send back a receipt with the exact amount circled for your check-keeping records.
We look forward to a fun week at the Holiday Workshop!
