Dear Parents:

This year the Grade 6 students and teachers are holding our school’s third annual White Elephant Sale on Friday, December 11th, to raise funds for our advent hampers as well as our end of the year field trip.  We are asking the St. Cecilia School community to donate gently used, clean items prior to December 10th.  The Grade 6 students and teachers will be sorting donations into different categories to make shopping more convenient.  Categories include:  books, toys, stuffed animals, CDs, movies, puzzles, games, Christmas knickknacks, jewellery (no used earrings please), crafts and household items.  We will not be accepting clothing or footwear.  Last year this was a success due to the excitement of the students as they found bargains to bring home and the generosity of the families who took the time to find items at home suitable for our sale.

We will be happy to accept donations of gently used, clean items anytime now up until December 10th in our Grade 6 classrooms or at the office.  On Friday, December 11th, each class will have the opportunity to come to the gym and shop.  Items will be marked in increments of 25 cents and most likely will be priced in the range of 25 cents to $5.  This may be an opportunity for young students to do some Christmas shopping.  In the meantime, please look through ‘no longer needed items’ in your home and consider donating to our White Elephant Sale.  We would also greatly appreciate donations of wrapping paper, tissue paper and gift bags.  This is in keeping with our gospel value of stewardship of the environment. Remember that ‘one person’s junk is another person’s treasure’.

With thanks in advance,

The Grade 6 Teachers
