Santa Shop Next Week
CKS Santa Shop is NEXT WEEK!!! Please read below for details and look for a handout and envelope in your children’s folders this week!
 
What is the Santa Shop?
The CKS Santa Shop is a store that is set-up in our school and run by parent volunteers. Profits benefit the CKS Parent Teacher Organization.
Our children can learn the joy of giving and making memories during the holidays with the CKS Santa Shop. For many children, this may be the first time they experience the joy of picking out their own gifts for family and friends. They love shopping in their own school, in a safe environment, without Mom or Dad seeing what they are purchasing. The CKS Santa Shop is also educational. Children learn the valuable lesson of budgeting their money and choosing their gifts wisely.  Gifts range in price from $1.00 - $13.00.
 
How does my child buy gifts at the Santa Shop?
Your child will shop at the Santa shop during the school day with his or her class. Later this week your child will bring home an information sheet and a budget shopping envelope in which to put money and for use in planning purchases.
Tuesday 12/04 KGA, KGB, 1A, 1B, 3B, 5A, 5B
Wednesday 12/05 4A, 4B, 2B
Thursday 12/06 2A
Friday 12/07 3A
 
What kind of can my child use at the Santa Shop?
This year you can purchase gift certificates in advance of the sale, which you can print off at home via  www.holidayshop.org/giftcert . This may be easier for our younger shoppers. We keep track of gift certificates! If they are misplaced, we will still have a record of the amount remaining so that no one loses any funds. If your child does not spend all of the gift certificate, you will get cash as change.
 **No checks or credit cards will be accepted at the shop.   

How can I volunteer?
There are also opportunities for middle school students to help set up and receive service hours. Sign-up soon before all the spots are gone!
 
Who can I contact with questions about the Santa Shop?
