Santa Store – additional hours!

We will be opening the M.V. Beattie Santa Store on Sunday December 20 between 9:30am-11:30am and Monday, December 21st between 4:00pm-5:30pm to enable families that could use a little help during the holiday season to come and find some gifts for their children. We have been fortunate to have had generous donations from our parent community and staff, so please take advantage of this opportunity.

We would appreciate knowing when people are likely to arrive (as our typical Covid protocol -masks, sanitizing, etc. – will still be in effect), so please email gdoray@sd83.bc.ca to let me know when you are planning to come.

M.V. Beattie’s Santa Store

Starting Dec. 7th, M.V. Beattie will be offering a chance for parents/guardians “to shop” for presents for their children at school. We will be using the same room that you may have visited during our “Book Fair” – which is located around back of the building. As was the case for the Book Fair, we will be following our District’s Health and Safety Committee’s Covid Protocol. Masks are mandatory, people will have to sign the health check form, use hand sanitizer and keep physical distancing. Only 2-3 people will be allowed inside at a time. The store will be open between 7:30-8:30 each morning and again after school between 2:30-3:30.

We are grateful for all of the donations for this worthy project. All of these gifts have been donated by our school community. We have new and “lightly used” treasures that will brighten up a special someone’s Christmas. We ask that parents/guardians limit themselves to 1-2 gifts per child. Please give us a call if you would like to visit our Santa Store – and we will make sure someone is there to help you.

We continue to gratefully accept more donations of new and “lightly used” gifts!

Thanks to everyone for sharing the Christmas Spirit!
