Children’s Holiday Shop and Vendor Fair

holiday Shopping1Saturday, December 3, 2016 10 AM -1 PM the cafeteria will be transformed into a shopping experience for even our youngest students. This is an Island Creek favorite! Students, with the help of volunteers, will be able to purchase gifts and have them wrapped on site, keeping things a secret! Hot cocoa and candy canes will be given to all those who participate. This is not a fundraiser! The PTA earns no money-we pass on inexpensive prices to you as a service event. Bring your kiddos and help them learn about giving to others and budgeting. Raffle tickets will be sold for a huge stocking full of gifts. All funds raised will be donated to Island Creek Elementary School families in need.

We will also be holding a holiday market for adults in attendance. While your kids are shopping in the holiday shop, why not check off your gift list with local businesses?

Fliers and budget envelopes will be sent home closer to the event.

Please see the vendor flier ices-holiday-market-application-2

If you are able to help, please sign up on the sign-up genius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4eaeaf22a20-ices1
