Good morning! There have been a lot of questions about the Santa Shop that the FBLA is hosting this Friday at the elementary school, so I wanted to try to clear some things up: 1) Kids typically go to this after school with their parents or a sibling either with them or in the hallway waiting for them (it will be open until 6:00 pm). 2) The envelope is so that kids can have money in that envelope when they come to the shop and the helpers know who to assist the kids to shop for (so that parents can be surprised with what their kids get for them). 3) Kids will not be going to this with their classroom. 4) Please do not send $ to school for this. I apologize for any misunderstanding! I realize that we have not done this in several years, and it should have been explained better. Please let me know if you have other questions. Mr. Kean
