HOLIDAY WORKSHOP

Calling all volunteers! The Holiday Workshop is almost here! Holiday Workshop is an annual event where students are given an opportunity to do some holiday shopping for their family and friends. We have wonderful items for parents, grandparents, siblings, even pets -- all on a kid-friendly budget ranging from $.25 - $6.50. Children will attend the Holiday Workshop with their class during school hours from Tuesday Dec. 1st - Friday Dec. 4th.

An event of this magnitude needs a TON of volunteers to make it a success. We need volunteers to help as "shopping assistants", making sure each child takes care of everyone on their list and stays within budget. We also need volunteers to run the cash registers and help with wrapping/bagging the purchases. Please consider helping out at this fun event! Please print out the volunteer form using the link below and return to school, no later than Tuesday November 17th.
