PENGUIN PATCH HOLIDAY SHOP IS COMING!

The holidays are around the corner, and we have an exciting program at school NEXT WEEK!



During school hours, we will have a shop open where the children can shop secretly for their loved ones. Students will be bringing home letters and budget envelopes explaining more about the program a few days before their classroom's scheduled shopping day. The gifts are fairly inexpensive, ranging from $0.25 to $10. Items will even be gift wrapped when they come home! The students loved this program last year and we are excited to be bringing it back again this year. Please contact Julie Sterzinger at jasterzinger@gmail.com with any questions.



PENGUIN PATCH HOLIDAY SHOP - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

We are looking for volunteers to assist with sales and gift wrapping at our Penguin Patch Holiday Shop next week. The volunteers who signed up last year LOVED helping the children pick out gifts for their families! This is a fun way to help out during the school day. Please sign up using the link below, and contact Julie Sterzinger at jasterzinger@gmail.com with any questions.
