Holiday Gift Store
Profits Big Again!
The Holiday Gift Shop had a record setting year and made over $1800. This is due to the tremendous amount of wonderful items donated to the North Tama Elementary Holiday Gift Store. Our area businesses and community members donate all of the items. A very special thanks goes to the parent volunteers as well as some of North Tama's retired teachers for their many hours working at the Holiday Gift Store. The money will pay for the Redhawk’s Reading Month special assembly and support the visiting author program this next school year. Happy Holidays and see you next year!
