               St. Emily’s Annual White Elephant Sale!

                         Tuesday December 11, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This year the Grade 6 students and teachers are holding our school’s annual White Elephant Sale on Tuesday, December 11th! The proceeds raised will go towards our end of the year field trip as well as the Christmas hampers. We are asking the St. Emily School community to donate new or 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.  This has been a great success over the years 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.

On Tuesday, 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 $3. 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 REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE environmentally friendly attitude. Remember that ‘one person’s junk is another person’s treasure’!

With thanks in advance,

The Grade 6 Teachers
