Sheckler News: Sheckler holiday shop to open Dec. 9

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 by The Press in School

Sheckler Elementary School’s Home and School group is sponsoring a holiday shop Dec. 9 through Dec. 13 for students to buy gifts for their families. Each grade will have a designated day to make purchases.

If your child will be participating in this activity, money — in an envelope or Ziploc bag with his or her name on it — should be sent to school on his or her given day to shop. You may also want to indicate who the student is buying gifts for, so the helper elves can assist in making sure a gift is purchased for each person on the list.
