“One-stop shopping” was the theme at Ringgold’s Elementary School North (RESN). An entire classroom was filled with Christmas gifts suitable for a young student’s budget.

I got my gifts and still have money left

Mrs. Jennie Eicker, with plenty of help from parents, other PTA members, and the students, had the classroom well-stocked with items for students friends and family members.

Students, during a full week before the Christmas vacation began, could spend as much of their recess time as they needed shopping for gifts in Santa’s Workshop. Each student at RESN helped in decorating the room with paper cut-out snowflakes hung from the ceiling. Christmas trees and other Christmas decorations were scattered along the tables filled with gifts for sale at bargain prices. Even Principal Ross Ference could be seen looking over the well-stocked tables of gifts.

Students showed up with envelopes containing their allotted funds from home for Christmas gift spending, and not just a few learned it was tough to stay within their budget. Any profit made in the sales went back to PTA projects for the children, and the children took home great gifts to wrap for friends and family members.
