Four gift box with toys isolated on white backgroundThe holidays are near, and as a special service, our PTA is hosting a Lil’ Shopper’s Shoppe. Students will have the opportunity to pick out their own inexpensive, high-quality gifts for family and friends.

The Lil’ Shopper’s Shoppe is a program designed for students to shop on their own at school in a safe non-commercial environment. They can learn to budget their money and spend wisely while also experiencing the “Joy of Giving.”

The Lil’ Shopper’s Shoppe will be set up in the Sixth Grade Hall during all lunches and will be run by parent and grandparent volunteers. Gifts are priced for a child’s budget, ranging from $0.25 to $10.00, with most items priced under $5.00. There are gifts available for all the members of your Lil’ Shopper’s family.

Cash and credit cards will be accepted as payment.

The CCS Reading Rocks Worm sitting on a rock reading a book and listening to music on his headphonesMany thanks to everyone who supported this year’s Reading Rocks! literacy and fundraising campaign. By the conclusion of the campaign on December 1, 2017, we raised over $2,200!! Everyone’s donations are greatly appreciated, and 100% of the donations stay at our school and will be spent on student-use iPads and books!

This year, SFCMS raised funds through a school-wide dance, a grade-level “money war,” and a basket raffle. We are also especially thankful to the following individual donors who helped us through their direct donations.

Silver-Level Sponsor: LifeLink Medical Group, PLLC
Bronze-Level Sponsors: John & Catherine Pollard and Liliana & Lamont Cephas

Thank you! We look forward to continuing to celebrate literacy all year both in and out of the classroom!
