St. Nicholas Shop Dec.3 thru Dec.5
Volunteers Needed!
The K-5 teachers have signed up for a time slot. We will be sending home a flyer the afternoon before your child's class is scheduled to shop. There is also a link to the flyer below so you can print it out if it's lost. Please be on the lookout for this and fill it out and return it with your child the following day with money so we don't have to encounter broken hearts.
 
There will be shopping available during lunch periods for all grades. 
 
We need a lot of help to keep the shop running smoothly and ensure the kids have a great experience!   Please pick a time slot or several if your schedule permits. Please remember to try not to pick a time slot when your children's class will be shopping, as they want their gifts to be a surprise! The class times are noted in the SignUp Genius via the link below. Also the younger grades need the most help. Your help is invaluable and so appreciated! Please let me know if you have questions; Shelly Preston at shelmail1@yahoo.com .
