The 2019 Shopping Day was a huge success. Due to the bad weather, the number of children was less than we had hoped it would be (approximately 800), but everyone that made it had a blast. We had to bring the line inside the store due to the storms, but all the children behaved very well! We had over 250 volunteers attend the shopping, which meant that the line went down pretty quickly. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their morning to shop with the kids.
This year, we had the Guardians of Justice Superheroes, who were part of our volunteer team. We had Captain America, Batman, and several other characters that walked around the store, surprising the kids in the toy aisles.
Each child received $100 to shop until they dropped, and it was such fun being able to see the smiles on their faces and the smiles on the faces of the chaperones who help make this a wonderful experience.
After the children had chosen their goodies, they checked out, picked up their snack bags, and then had photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, who were sitting at their den by the exit. The Superheroes joined them too.
Check out the photos that were taken by Sara Greenwood and Arlys Lopez, who also kindly volunteered their time. They are already there now!
The 2020 Shopping Day at Target will be on Saturday, 12th December. If you would like to volunteer as a chaperone at the shopping day and volunteer your time, pleaseclick here.
Sally Ride Elementary now has an A rating due to the hard work of the staff, teachers, and principal. Mrs. Flores has worked hard at merging the two schools while encouraging the staff and children to work as hard as possible throughout the year.
The Rocket Reading and Math Mentors from the Nobilo Foundation continue working with the children from 1st/2nd grade. Some of the children that have fallen behind take part in extra reading and math each week.
