The Fletcher Elementary School PTA recently held their annual Santa Secret Shop to help students purchase gifts for their families during the holiday season. The three-day event allowed children to pick from $1 store items for every age group. The PTA volunteers shopped with the children to help choose just the right gift and then wrapped the gifts for the students to take them home.
“It is good for the community to get together and show children what the holidays are really about – giving,” said Fletcher PTA member, Allison Murphy-Johnson. ‘Some students don’t have the opportunity to go out and shop for their families and this event gives them a chance to think about others and the importance of giving over the holiday season.”
