Tomorrow (December 16) is our school's annual White Elephant Sale. Kindergarten students will have an opportunity to visit the sale and purchase treasures with the help of a Grade 6 personal shopper.
If you wish for your kindergartener to be able to do a little Christmas shopping please send them with their shopping money in a sandwich sized ziploc style bag with their name and class (i.e.,Team Hummingbird) clearly printed on the bag. (Quarters, loonies and toonies are appreciated **Please do not send $10 and $20 bills)
For parents who are new to our White Elephant Sale there are always items at all price points. They start at 0.25 and sometimes range up to about $5.00. Most kindergarten age students do very well at the sale with $5.00 in change but even as little as 0.25 or 0.50 lets them come home with a treasure.
It is a good idea to send a reusable shopping bag labelled with your child's name and class to help your shopper carry home his/her treasures.
If you would like your son or daughter to shop for specific family members ( ie: mom, dad, baby sister) please send a "I want to buy for" list in the bag with your child's money in order to help the teacher and grade 6 shopping helpers. **Please make sure the shopping list and ziploc bag with their money is inside their note tote (so that we can see it in the morning)!**
