Christmas Corner  is upon us once again Friday December 14th.For those of you who don’t know what Christmas Corner is, let me explain. Lakeview Community PTA sponsors a shopping day for all the children at Lakeview School. The PTA’s shopper scours all the bargain tables year round to find nice items for $4.00 and under for the kids to buy for their family members. The kids buy the items for whatever PTA had paid for them. Then, the gifts are wrapped by volunteers and labeled for the kids to take home and put under the Christmas tree. If you prefer that your child did not participate, please explain this to your child ahead of time.
