Annual LAS Holiday Boutique

LAS Holiday Boutique – December 11, 2017 -**** PLEASE NOTE CORRECTED DATE****

We are preparing for the Annual LAS Holiday Boutique — an “in school store” set up by the P.T.A. that is filled with merchandise donated by families and friends of LAS so children can shop for their loved ones for the Holidays.

The items for sale generally retail from $1.00 to $6.00 per item. The children shop with the help of volunteers during school hours on Monday, December 4th. We are requesting at least 10 of each donated item and will need them before Thanksgiving. Our goal is to collect approximately 3,000 items. Your child will be shopping for siblings, parents, grandparents, pets etc, therefore we need gifts for all ages and types. The success of this event is due to the dedication and generosity of many, many parents!

How can you help? Here are some ideas… 

  • You can donate your own crafts (ornaments/decorations) or store bought items (toys, notepads, mugs, lotion/bath sets, candles, scarves, jewelry, tool kits, ice scrapers, calendars, etc.) for the Boutique.
  • Dollar stores, The Christmas Tree Shop, Michael’s, Five Below and Oriental Trading offer a wide variety of gifts perfect for the Holiday Boutique.
  • Feeling crafty? Host a crafting night and make your own creations!
  • We’d love to shop for you. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated! If you have a monetary contribution (cash or check payable to LAS PTA), please place it in  a sealed envelope in the Holiday Boutique box in the office.
  • In addition, we need volunteers to help wrap the items or to work on the day of the event helping with sales (in 2-4 hour increments). Please consider taking a few hours to help out with this event. The children love it and it is fun helping them choose gifts for their family.

Please watch our website for sign ups and if you’d like to donate an item, please drop it off in the box in the main lobby along with your contact info.

Thank you in advance for helping make this year’s Boutique one of the most successful ever!

Please email marcykpta15@gmail.com or  Triciappta@gmail.com with any questions.
