JINGLE BELL JUNCTION
Date: Second Friday in December 8:30am – 3:00pm
Jingle Bell Junction is a favorite annual tradition for St. James Academy community members of all ages. The Susan Tucker Moore Theatre is transformed into a Winter Wonderland where students shop for gifts for close family members. Kindergarten and Pre-First students get help from their 4th and 5th grade buddies. It’s a festive day as students shop, parents wrap, and everyone enjoys Christmas cookies and a visit with Santa.
To make this a successful shopping experience for the students, families are asked to donate the number of items their child(ren) will purchase. New and gently used items are collected year-round by the elevator at the end of the K-2nd hallway on the 2nd floor. This is a great opportunity to clean out unwanted items and give them a new purpose. Items for Dads/Grandfathers, teens, and pets are usually in short supply. Please make sure items such as puzzles and games include all of their pieces, and electronic items are working properly.
Parent “elves” make this event successful. Please consider volunteering your time to decorate, set-up items, help students with their purchases, wrap gifts, donate cookies or clean up.
Join us as a volunteer...if you’re incredibly organized we can use your help all year long…perfect for a working parent or someone who stays at home…since our complimentary storage unit is available when you are!
Volunteers are also needed to set up the day before the event, assisting children and wrapping the gifts the day of the event, and of course all of the necessary clean up following the event! Please consider a setup or clean up shift…as we all know, Santa can’t work in a messy shop!
