3. Please Sign Up for Winter Events for Students and Staff!
Student Winter Bazaar
Students will be participating in the annual Winter Bazaar on Wednesday, December 20. For the month of December, students will be earning Panther Paws for showing RESPECT and EMPATHY (part of our REACH for the Stars) goals to earn them a ticket to enter our Winter Bazaar where students can then purchase holiday presents for family and friends using Panther Paws. As a result, we are asking for support from our Parkland parent and family community. Here are the ways you can support:
- We are asking for gift donations. Gifts can be new or like-new items. Please use this link for more information on examples of gift donations.
- We are asking for donations of wrapping paper and gift bags.
- We are asking families to volunteer to help set up, break down tables, and/or help with wrapping gifts. Please use this Sign-Up Genius to volunteer.

Lastly, we are asking our Parkland parent and family community to sign up to support the Staff Holiday Luncheon on Wednesday, December 20. Please use the link here to sign-up for contributing a dish.
