The RRRR Gift Exchange is a much-cherished tradition at Fernwood School. Each December, students have the opportunity to choose a personalized, secondhand gifts for each of their family members and have those gifts wrapped, all for free. This sweet event is eco-friendly and brings together many values promoted at the school. It is also requires great volunteers to plan and setup the temporary shop! Natasha Kong and Elizabeth FitzZaland have volunteered to lead the coordination this year, and are excited to get started. They are looking for a few other parents to help with the coordination so that the load is a bit lighter and the planning is more fun. Please contact Natasha at or 250-537-7253 

Collection Bins will be out starting the week of November 4th so please gather items and hang on until then...thank you! (note no clothing, ladies scarves and gloves etc would be fine; in particular need every year are items for Dad, and teens in addition to all the toys and household items collected)
