Picking the perfect present

The shop is open at ILES from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and also during the school day Monday in the school gym. The annual event allows students to shop for family and friends, choosing items ranging from 25 cents to $10, and also take advantage of free gift wrapping. Parent volunteers and ILHS Key Club members are available to help the children decide what items to purchase based on the money they have to spend. Parents are welcome to shop with their children as well. “It’s the perfect opportunity for the children to set a budget, and then make choices based on that budget,” PTO President Stefanie Hoffman said. “The students are so proud to be able to make their own decisions and give a gift that they picked out.” Funds raised help the ILES PTO support activities like the COSI on Wheels visit in the fall and the jump house activity on Field Day in the spring.
