December 2020


Holiday Shop
Memorial School 

This is an opportunity for students to purchase and wrap gifts for friends and family members.  Here's how it works: the PTO will set up a store at Memorial School on December . Around November we will send home envelopes that you and your child can use to write down who they want to buy for and how much they can spend, then you simply place the money in the envelope and bring it on the day of the shoppe. We will have "elves" ready to assist students with shopping and budgeting. The students will wrap their gifts at the shoppe so that they can be kept a secret until they are given! Gift items range from $.25 - $5.00. Based on the feedback we received from last year, we chose not to use an outside company this year, instead we selected and purchased all of the items ourselves, so we could provide better quality items for a lower price!


Holiday Bingo


Bingo will take place from 6:30 - 8:00.  This is such a fun event, and all of the kids go home with a prize! Admission is 1 non perishable food item per person, to be donated to the East Hampton food bank. Items most needed at this time are canned soup, canned fruit, peanut butter, rice, spaghetti sauce, toothpaste and shampoo.

I addition to "regular bingo" we also have three games of Stand up/Sit down bingo. Prizes for these games are huge bags filled with toys and other goodies! The cost is $5 per card and you will use the same card for all three games. The way this game works is everyone stands up holding their card, we call bingo numbers, if the number called appears on your card you sit down, the last person standing who has not had any numbers on their card called is the winner.

Each child is given one raffle ticket when they enter the event. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased. Throughout the evening we will draw raffle tickets for the winners to pick prizes off our raffle table.

We will also have refreshments and snacks for sale during the event!

WE NEED DONATIONS FOR THIS EVENT! We need donations of new holiday ornaments to fill our prize tree. You may send ornaments to school marked PTO Bingo. If you would like to donate a raffle prize please email 



Holiday Gifts for Teachers/Faculty



Parents and students can purchase books through this program, in honor of a teacher or faculty member.  A tag recognizing the teacher/faulty member is placed in the book and the book will be added to the school library. Also, each teacher/faculty member receives a card telling him/her about the gift. For questions call
