Santa's Secret Workshop Dec 12-13

Marguerita students will have the opportunity to buy presents for friends, teachers, and relatives. The goal is to instill the joy of giving but also to teach the children about currency and help them use their math skills. Each gift is in the one dollar to five dollar range. This will be during lunch and recess and only two days. *Please note the change as we lack space and volunteers.

The Marguerita PTA wishes you the Happiest of Holidays. Thank you for your support in helping Marguerita and making it an atmosphere of learning and enriching your child's life.

Santa's Secret Shop Needs Volunteers

At Santa's "Secret Shop" students buy gifts for their teachers, friends, and family. The gifts are sold at really low prices (e.g. $1-$5), so that it's really just a service to the students during this special time of year. 

This year Santa's Shop will be open on Dec 12 - 13, and the kids will shop during their recesses and lunch times. Volunteers will help the kids select gifts and wrap them, as well as keep the shop tidy. We also need two cashiers per shift. It will be in the library.

The signup sheet is here:

Please help if you can!

The Jog-A-Thon Committee and Marguerita PTA Board appreciate your support for this big event. We consider it a very successful fundraiser because not only did we fundraise enough money to support this year's programs, but we also built school spirit, had tremendous student and parent/volunteer participation, and raised school pride.
