Holiday Bookshop

It's that time of year again to prepare for holiday bookshop! Each December, Lochside students have the opportunity to choose books to gift to their family members. We are looking for donations of used children's and adult books (please consider what would be an appropriate gift selection to go home). There will be collection boxes by the office and at the top of the ramp to the Sunspace marked with "Holiday Bookshop."

Along with book donations we are looking for wrapping paper and ribbon for the holiday book shop! They can be placed in the book collection boxes at the front office and beside the sunspace/multipurpose room. Thank you everyone for your support!

Fill the House Food & Gift Drive - OPEN UNTIL FRIDAY

Please drop off your non-perishable food donations to the gingerbread house at the front of the school! Food collection will continue until Friday morning, Dec. 8th. Thank you to everyone who has contributed!!! The house is filling up. Thank you to all the children who have returned their colored gingerbread figures, they are all up on display.


A few more wishlist items have been added to the tree. If you want to make a wish come true for a child this Christmas, please select a gingerbread figure off the tree and return the gift unwrapped in the box under the tree. Cash and gift cards are also accepted in the stocking on the office window. A big thank you to those families that have helped make a wish come true!! REMINDER - please return all gifts by Thursday, December 7th!  More information is available here!
