Happy Holidays Southside Families
Holiday House is such a special event that allows each and every student to shop
for holiday gifts they can give to their family. This year Holiday House will take place
December 4th – 8th at Southside Elementary.
Our volunteers stock a mini-store within the school so that Southside students can shop for gifts for up to 6 family members. We wrap them too! We ask for a donation of $10.00 to help keep the store stocked with inventory and wrapping supplies. Any additional donations are appreciated!!! We will have a wrapping donation box at the front office. Please drop off wrapping paper, ribbon, bows, tissue paper, and holiday bags if you are able to so. If you would like to donate any additional money to sponsor a child, please include it in the attached envelope. Attached, you will also find the students’ shopping list and “to/from” labels. Please assist your child in filling them out (it’s always helpful to include approx. age of people on the list or if it’s a family pet). Your child will come with their teacher and class during a selected time within the school day.
This is not a fund-raising event. The money you send in goes directly to the Holiday House. These donations enable us to provide a successful experience for each and every student. Cash and checks will be accepted. Please make checks payable to:
