“The KIDS SHOP Event Is NEXT Sunday!  Here’s all the Information You’ll Need:

**Lunch will be provided for all the families…also Christmas refreshments.

**Parents will receive texts Wednesday evening advising total points for each child which determines the Shopping Order.  It will advise the approximate time your children will shop so you can plan your Sunday.

**If your child is one of the first 5 ki*s to shop, be sure they eat some lunch quickly so they’ll be ready to shop!

**A Shopping Runner may come to get your child during lunch for their turn.

**Additional points Dec 5 will be added to totals but won’t affect shop order.

**Your child will shop about 15 min and then will go to “Gift Wrap” where they can wrap their presents or some-one will help them wrap gifts.
