Secret Santa Shoppe
It's that time of the year again!  On Monday and Tuesday December 3rd & 4th , our school gym will magically transform from a gymnasium into the North Pole! 

Santa's St John's volunteer elves have been busy shopping over the past year building up the inventory that will soon stock the shelves of this years Secret Santa Shoppe. This is not a fund raiser! The Secret Santa Shoppe is simply a service that the PTO offers to our students in order to give them the opportunity to to do some Christmas shopping for their family/friends/pet/etc all on their own!
Please continue reading the letter below for all the information!

Elves volunteers are needed to help run the shop! Please sign up via the link below! Seeing the smiles on the kids faces as they find the "perfect gift" is a delight to watch so if your schedule allows, please consider volunteering for as many shifts as you can! If you have any questions, please contact Heidi Dahlstrand by phone or text at 847-302-3967 by email at heidi827@msn.com
