Essex Public School hosts holiday bazaar

Submitted to EFP

  Essex Public School once again hosted its annual Holiday Bazaar last Thursday morning.  A number of local handcrafters provided items for sale to the students at reasonable prices. The students were able to purchased gifts for family members. 

  Students visited the Holiday Bazaar throughout the day where they had an opportunity to purchase something special for their parents/guardians/grandparents/siblings and have it wrapped and all set for hiding until that special day.

  It was terrific to observe so many older students assisting younger students purchase gifts, demonstrating kindness, and sharing a smile.  Holiday cheer was abundant in the classrooms, gymnasium, and halls of EPS!

  Parent Council also organized a “re-gifting table,” where donated items from the community were available for students at very low prices. Baked Goods and other treats were available all day long, thanks to all the parents who baked and sent in goodies!

   Thank you to our School Advisory Council for organizing this wonderful community event for our students and families!  As well, a ‘thank you’ goes out to all the volunteers who contributed time to make this day possible. We are Phoenix Proud!
