Let your child experience the joy of giving this holiday season in a safe, educational and fun environment at the Penguin Patch Holiday Shoppe at Banks Primary School on December 1-3, 2014.
An envelope will be sent home that will safely and conveniently hold money for your child's shopping. Our reasonably priced gift items range from $0.25 to $12.00 with the majority of the items falling between $1.00 and $4.00.
Once your child steps into the shop, they will be greeted by Mrs. Dillard, and/or parent volunteer,s who will offer to help them stay within their budget and make gift selections for everyone on their list. You can join in on the fun by helping your child choose who they will surprise with a gift and suggest ways for them to earn extra holiday money.
Look for notes to come home in the Tuesday Take Home Folder on Tuesday, November 18, 2014.
