The Cornwall Holiday Shop will be held on November 28th, 29th, 30th & December 1st 2017. This project is held each year to allow the children to independently select and purchase holiday gifts for their family, loved ones, and pets. With the assistance of our volunteer 'elves', the children receive individual attention while shopping and also get a mini-lesson in budgeting.
Parents often ask what type of gifts are available at the Holiday Shop and how much money they should give their child to spend. We always have a nice variety of gifts ranging from $1.00 to $7.00 (tax included). Just a few examples of items that will be available for Moms and Grandmas would be candles, lotions, home décor, jewelry and mugs. For Dads and Grandpas we have sports related items, tools, hats, calendars and mugs. The children’s table will have toys, books, games and items suitable for newborns up to teenagers. Lastly, we wouldn’t want to forget the four legged friends of the family so children can purchase $1.00 items from our pet shop if they desire.
You can help by establishing a purchasing allowance/shopping list with your child using the envelope that will be sent home with your child. Please send money in the sealed envelope with your child on the shopping day scheduled for his/her class (schedule will sent home with your child and posted on the website in November). Checks can be made out to Cornwall Elementary PTO if you prefer this method. Any change will be returned to you in the envelope.
We would like to encourage the idea of giving at this time of year. We are asking that children not be given money to purchase items for themselves during their scheduled class shopping time. Children are welcome to shop for themselves during the Family and Friends shopping time from 2 pm - 5 pm on Friday December 1st. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
The children love making their own gift selections with the assistance of our volunteer 'elves.' If you are interested in volunteering to help our children, please click on the Sign Up Genius button and select a time or times that work in your schedule. This is a fun and heartwarming way to volunteer with the PTO.
If you do not wish to have your child participate in this project, please send a note to their teacher.
