Garage Sale for Ann Davis Transition House

Come one, come all!  On Tuesday, December 4 the primary department is hosting a garage sale in the chapel.  The sale will be open before school, beginning at 8:30 until the bell rings, and after school until 3:30.  Parents are invited to shop during those times, and students will be visiting the sale during the school day with their classes.

The majority of items will range in price from .25 to $2 with a few bigger pieces being priced higher.

Please send children with a bit of money to shop, if you wish, and with a plastic grocery bag labelled with their name, for their purchases to go in.  This could be a great opportunity for your child to buy a little Christmas gift for a sibling!

Garage sale fundraiser

As a primary department, we have been looking for ways that our children can give back and serve their community, and this year we have decided that we will hold a Garage Sale!

The Garage Sale will be held at the beginning of December, so between now and then we are looking for our primary families to donate any toys or games that they no longer want. So, as you think about cleaning up and clearing out your playroom before Christmas, consider what you can donate.

Donations may be given to classroom teachers. Please only send items that work, and that are in good condition. The money we raise will be donated to the Ann Davis House.
