Virtual Santa's Secret Shop is coming to our school!

We are inviting you and your child to participate in the upcoming VIRTUAL Santa's Secret Shop program at our school. This program makes it possible for children to experience the joy of choosing their own special holiday gifts for family and friends from the comfort of their own home.


We believe this program will create wonderful memories for your child while teaching them to budget their money and make their own decisions. With your help, your child can log into our school's website where they will be able to view and purchase a large variety of gifts in different price ranges. You will have the opportunity to review the total amount spent before checking out. All gifts will include a free gift bag for wrapping.
