Looking for a special gift? We are again providing the opportunity for children to purchase Holiday Gift Certificates to give their teachers in lieu of personal gifts. Please understand that a gift of a card or a note is most appropriate and appreciated, and nothing more is necessary. However, if your child wishes to give something else, the attached letter explains the Gift Certificate option. The certificate is given to a staff member and the money to charity. If your child wishes to give a gift to any staff member, we encourage you to consider the certificate option. This concept can also be extended beyond Shongum School. Children can also purchase the Gift Certificates to be used as gifts for friends, relatives, coaches or neighbors. In this way, the joy of gift giving is preserved and the money goes to a worthwhile cause. Please click on the attached letter and order form for more information on this special program. We hope this option makes the spirit of Holiday giving even more meaningful. For more inforamtion or if you have any questions, please contact Julie Hamilton at email@example.com.
