Dear Parents,

We are inviting  you and your child to participate  in the upcoming "Holiday Gift 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. The "Holiday Gift Shop" program will be set up at the school and supervised by our parent volunteers. They will help the children pick that perfect gift for the price they want... in a familiar, comfortable atmosphere.
