Penguin Patch Holiday Shop

Ready… set…shop! It’s that time of year again and Fox Meadow PTO is ready to help you and your child cross off some of those items on your Holiday shopping list! A flyer is coming home regarding the Penguin Patch Holiday Shop but here are some additional details.

December Thursday 7th & Friday 8th

Students will shop with their class at a time that will
be determined by their teacher

**Please make sure your child brings their completed wish list envelope, with their money enclosed, on the day of their shopping trip. It helps us help them with making their purchases. **

Your children absolutely love picking out that special item for each person on their list so we encourage you to let them make the final decision on their selections and please don’t peek at what they bring home. We will try to wrap all their gifts but if we run short on time, we will send the wrapping bags home for them to wrap on their own.

You may preview items available at this year’s shop
