Santa’s Workshop

Wednesday, December 18, 2019

This is such a special event! Kids come to school in PJs and visit our very own Santa’s Workshop (the beautifully decorated gym) to select, purchase and wrap presents for their immediate family.  All items are sold for $2.  It is a huge treat for our children to do this independently and actually surprise their family with a gift.  Usually they are the first ones that must be opened on Christmas morning!

To make this wonderful PJ PAC event happen requires a lot of coordinating, volunteering and gifts to be supplied.

If you’d like to be involved in helping, we need help with:

Sorting presents
Washing stuffies
Organizing jewelry

Decorating the gym
Organize & display the gifts

Helping at the event

Taking down decorations

Packing up un-sold items
Feeding the volunteers

Drop Off Donations and Gift Wrap

On Monday November 25th, you can drop off everything you have been saving up!  Then again from Dec 2 – 16th, donations of gently used items and gift wrap (including gift bags, tape, bows, and jewelry boxes) can be left before and after school in the boxes under the office’s front window.

Contribute to the event

Santa’s Workshop is a great community spirit event for our children, but also for us adults. Coming into the school to help out connects you with other parents, and can be a fun way to feel a part of PJ and pass an hour or two getting to know others.

Items will be accepted until Dec 16, but early donations are encouraged so everything can be sorted, stuffies can be washed, etc.
