Holiday Shoppe

The Holiday Shoppe is an event held at the school before the winter break that provides students an opportunity to purchase inexpensive gifts for parents, siblings and friends for the Holidays.

Typically, when families arrive at the school, parents relax while the children shop with the assistance of volunteers.  This enables the children to purchase small gifts to give to their parents, siblings and friends while maintaining the element of surprise.


This year's Holiday Shoppe will be held on Saturday, December 12th from 10:00 am - noon.  Come to enjoy great shopping for the kids at the Kids Korner Holiday Shop, the choir from Murphy singing holiday carols and a great selection of local vendors selling their items.  Such vendors include: Lia Sophia, Scentsy, Jesse Dunn Home Contracting, Duct Tape Creations, Handmade Jewelry, Brownie Trooop 278 Bake Sale, Younique Cosmetics, MKT Crafts, Cub Scout Pack 712, Design Divaz and many more local artisans.  Thers is sure to be something for everyone!

Volunteers are asked to help with:

  • - setting up the Holiday Shoppe,
  • - assisting the children with their shopping needs,
  • - restocking merchandise as needed,
  • - working the cash register, and cleaning up after the event.
