2016 CHRISTMAS MARKET
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25th
This is a reminder that volunteers and donations are needed for the KIDS CHRISTMAS MARKET which is happening at the school on Friday, Nov 25th. Last year was such a tremendous success in raising funds and awareness for supporting others in our community, as well as a big surprise for everyone on Christmas morning when you opened the carefully chosen gift your child thought was perfect for you. If you have items to donate, please send them to the office beginning on Monday Nov 21st. We are off to a great start as many people have said they have been collecting donations and will be bringing them in. Monday thru Thursday is preferred but donations will be accepted until the morning of the market.
Thank you to everyone who has already contacted me to let us know they can help out with the Market. More volunteers are still needed; even an hour makes a big difference. Any time you can spare is appreciated. Volunteer times are as follows:
1:00 – 3:00 on Wednesday Nov 23rd for donation collection and set up.
9:00 – 3:00 on Thursday Nov 24th for donation collection, sorting and pricing.
9:00 – 3:30 on Friday Nov 25th to help with the actual sale. Parents are needed to help look after a table, wrap gifts, etc. Shifts are available all day until 3:30 PM. Come for a while or set the whole day aside, you choose, but we do need your help to make this event successful.
PLEASE CONTACT EVELYN at email@example.com if you are able to volunteer.
Parents and siblings not attending the school are invited to shop after school. Students may also revisit the market at this time.
If you are asking yourself "What is the Kids Christmas Market", then you probably missed the notice that recently went home. Don't worry; a copy is available on the school website homepage under the publication section and there may be a copy or two at the office.
Please remember that students should bring small change, loonies and toonies on the day of the market as well as a shopping bag to carry their purchases home safely.
Please talk to your children:
1. About why we are raising money (for example, to support Coquitlam families through the Share/Project Angel program with gifts and food donations, as well as the homeless with toques and socks and what that will mean to them).
2. That they are shopping for family members and other special people in their lives.
3. Encourage them to do extra chores around the house etc. to EARN their spending money.
All classes will be given an opportunity to shop.
