*Notes for Santa Shop brought up at meeting

1. The school has done a program like this in the past but ran into issues with the products being poor in quality.
2. Just before winter break may be too busy to take extra time out of class.
3. To offset this the idea of doing this on a Saturday was mentioned.
4. Offer a some sort of incentive program where kids could maybe earn tickets to get gifts for families that can’t afford to send in money so that kids don’t feel left out.
