Events & Activities

Dear ASCA Families

Hard to believe but Christmas is fast approaching.  As we begin our season preparations, we want to be sure to encourage our children to prepare as well, so they too can experience the joy of giving at the holiday.  PTO sponsors an annual event, the “Santa Shop” which allows students the opportunity to Christmas shop for family and friends during the school day.  Items are moderately priced with a wide selection to choose from.  It’s amazing to see how excited the students get when they experience the “gift of giving”.

Each grade will have a designated class shopping day/time.  A reminder note and budget envelope will be sent home as we near the sale. 

December 5 is Grade 2, 4, 5, 6, 7

December 6 is PK 1, Grade 1, 3, 8

December 7 is Nursery, PK 2, and Kindergarten

Gift Prices range from under $1.00 - $12.00

Each gift will be sent home in its own gift bag with a to/from label
