Gift Baskets for Valentine Dance

Deadline for basket completion:  February 6th

(Dance: Friday, February 10)   - A message from School Council…

  • “The Gift Baskets at the dance are always really popular when we auction them off. This year we have tried to go with ideas that will reduce the candy load and focus on creative or healthy or fun things.

  • Please can you talk to your students about not filling these up with junk food but using their imagination to come up with thoughtful unusual contributions?  

  • February 6th: Please let parents know that this is the final date to send in items as the baskets take several days to complete and we don't want anyone disappointed that their item isn't included in their child’s class basket.

  • Cash or gift cards are happily accepted, if parents are unsure of what to send. We will do the shopping on their behalf.”
