2014 KCSMA Holiday Shop

Dear KCSMA Families,

The holidays are near, and as a special service to our students, we are holding a Holiday Shop. Children will have the opportunity to pick out their own inexpensive, high quality gifts for family and friends during school hours. The Holiday Shop is designed to be a safe, child-centered environment where children can learn how to budget and spend wisely, while they also experience the gift of giving.

The Holiday Shop will be open during school hours December 8th through December 12th. Please visit your child’s teacher’s blog or check your email to see which day your child’s class will be shopping.

The store will also be open during the Holiday Breakfast on Saturday, December 13th, but inventory will be limited to what is left in stock. Gifts range from 25cents to $5.00, with a lot of gifts in the $1.00 price range. All gifts will be wrapped or placed in gift bags.

If your child will be shopping, please fill out the budget form that will be sent home with your child or print the attached budget form below. Place the form and CASH in an envelope or plastic zip baggie clearly marked “Holiday Shop” and your child’s name and teacher’s name, and return it to your child’s teacher.

The Holiday Shop is still in desperate need of volunteers. We need many volunteers to assist the younger students with shopping and to help with gift wrapping. At this time, we do not have even half of the needed volunteers. Please visit the PTO website or http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0849a9ae2e5-20142 to volunteer.

Happy Holidays,

Tamara Beeler, Holiday Shop coordinator and KCSMA parent

Request for Clinic Supplies from Nurse Settle

With the weather getting much colder and many of our students fighting illnesses, Nurse Settle is in need of donations of the following items to restock the clinic.

  1. Tissues (many boxes needed)
  2. Disinfectant wipes (Clorox or Lysol)
  3. Band-aids
  4. Neosporin ointment
  5. 3 oz paper cups
  6. Gallon storage bags
  7. Disposable gloves (medium)
  8. Reusable ice packs
  9. Cough drops/throat lozenges

Let’s help stock the school clinic with needed supplies for those times when our students need a band-aid for a scrape on the playground, or have a scratchy throat and need a cough drop or throat lozenge.

Nurse Lola and our teachers truly appreciate each and every box of tissues, canister of wipes, bag of cough drops, box of band-aids or anything else on the list that you can provide.

Please drop off all donations at the front desk labeled:  FOR NURSE SETTLE – CLINIC
