Thursday, Dec 16th is Green Christmas! Families are asked to donate handmade crafts or new or used items that can make nice little gifts, and our students get to “shop” for Christmas. Each class comes through the fair, and students can purchase gifts at a very reasonable price and have them gift wrapped for free. All items will cost between 25c up to a few dollars. Please start thinking about what items your family would like to donate. These items can be homemade crafts or recycled items that you would like to receive yourself. Ideas are kitchen utensils, dish towels, jewelry, magazines, mugs, sunglasses, books, etc! The possibilities are endless! We ask that each family donate about 10 items per child if possible. You are also welcome to donate more than that! We kindly ask that donated items are not too large, as children will be transporting them home. Donations of wrapping paper or gift bags are also appreciated.
Drop off inside the BVE front entrance, on one of the provided rolling carts 🙂
You can start dropping off items on Monday, Dec 13th, into the Strong Start room (next to Ms. Evans’ class). We will also be looking for volunteers to help sell the items and wrap them – sign up on the PAC board or on the BVE Parents Facebook page.
Please send a small amount of money with your children the morning of the 16th so they may go Christmas Shopping! Items are tailored to your child’s budget. Also please send along a bag so that your child can take home their gifts. Merry Green Christmas, Everyone!
