Santa's Secret Shop

This event typically is in the Fall Semester during the first week of December. Students have the opportunity to shop in their own school, in a safe, non-commercial environment. They can learn to budget their money and spend wisely, while also experiencing the “Joy of Giving.” Gifts are priced for a child’s budget, ranging from $.25 to $10, but most gifts cost $5 and under.

There are gifts available for all members of the students’ family. The event starts with a “preview” day on Monday and is open through Thursday.
