Learn how to run a successful school holiday shop.
It is not easy – we all know that. There are so many challenges getting the kids involved in the endless programs made available to them, such as book fairs, fields trips, summer reading programs, diet / food programs, fundraisers, extended education classes – the list is endless it seems. On this page we will try and point out some of the more important factors in the decision-making process.
Important factors in choosing the right holiday shop for your school
Identifying the variables that are important to your school are seemingly endless. You want a school gift shop that is easy to run, you want it affordable, and you want to make it an exciting experience for the kids, different from school gift shops in your school district and myriad other factors that go into the decision making process. Part of that process and what we feel is the “First Step” is getting clearance from your school district administration and then getting the “ok” from your principal. The “Second Step” is forming the foundation of parents and potential student volunteers who will chiefly be responsible for managing your holiday shop. We mention student volunteers here because running a shop for schools can easily be turned into an educational and money budgeting project for both the younger children and the upper class elementary school kids as well. Choose the right holiday shop company – choose us.
Additional Reasons to Choose our Company
The older children can learn the concepts of percentages, mark-ups, accounting for funds and inventory control. The younger ones can learn about budgeting their money and more importantly they can learn the importance of “gift giving”, which is really what the holiday season is all about. The “Third Step” in the beginning stages of planning out a school shop fundraiser is to make 100% certain that you go through the calendar and make sure you can find the time in the “school calendar” to actually run the shop.
