A huge thank you to everyone who made the Candy Cane Shoppe a big success:
The Candy Cane Shoppe offers FCMA students an opportunity to purchase reasonably-priced holiday gifts to surprise family & friends. Each class will have a designated time to shop during the week of the sale. Gifts purchased will be wrapped and labeled and sent home with your child the day they buy them. Simply make a list of people your child wants to shop for, along with the amount to spend, and send in cash or check (payable to Parent Guild) with your child on their designated shopping day to pay for their purchases. Shopping dates will be Monday afternoon 12/3- Friday 12/7. The Shoppe is closed during lunch and dismissal time. Click here to view this year’s schedule.
New this year:
The Parent Guild has added a ‘donation in kind’ element. Students will have the opportunity to make a donation to a charity in someone’s name. If students choose to make a donation, they will receive a postcard to present to the recipient stating, ‘A donation was made in your honor to: _______(Charity Name).The charities the Parent Guild chose are:
- Heifer International https://www.heifer.org/about-heifer/index.html [heifer.org]
- The Detroit Zoological Society https://detroitzoo.org/about/your-detroit-zoo/ [detroitzoo.org]
- Make-a-Wish Michigan http://michigan.wish.org/about-us [michigan.wish.org]
- Most of the shop’s inventory this year comes from donation and crafts from the FCMA community. Expect to see unique gift items.
- Personalized ornaments will be offered! For a small additional fee, students can have ornaments personalized at the time of purchase to include a (sur)name and the year.
- We will also continue sticking fair trade craft items.
Please note that a blank shopping list and envelope for bringing in money to spend in the Candy Cane Shoppe will be sent home in your child’s Friday folder. There will be volunteers to help the little ones with the whole process! Please visit the following Parent Guild website to view the shopping schedule for each classroom: fcmaparentguild.com
