The Gingerbread Shop will be open December 1st-5th. Your child’s teacher will sign up for a time that his/her class will visit the shop, and the time will be communicated to you beforehand by your child’s teacher. The shop gives the children a chance to purchase holiday gifts for their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and friends on their own. The gifts will be wrapped and sent home with your child. More information and money envelopes will be coming home on Friday, November 21st. We will also open the shop for a family night on Monday, December 1st from 5:00-8:00 pm. You are welcome to come with your children and watch as they experience this great event!
