Winter is an exciting time of year. Kids look forward to Christmas and Hanukkah and spending time with family. For two years, students at Hanaford have had the chance to shop for gifts on their own at the Hanaford Holiday Shop (HHS).

The HHS was started in 2015 by the Hanaford PTG. The money raised goes to the PTG, and the products come from a company called FUN services in Fall River, Massachusetts. A few products came from the moms who volunteered.

The amount of money raised is still unknown. Mrs. Clark, mother of two students at Hanaford, said about 1,000-1,500 products were sold. This year the HHS was held in the music room and Mrs.Lee, the music teacher, said, “I like to help out anyway possible.”

Many students enjoyed the HHS. Catherine Neville, a fifth grader at Hanaford, said, “ I enjoyed the variety.”

“I liked the awesome gifts,” said Isabelle Chou, also a fifth grader.

The teachers also enjoyed it it. Ms.Bose, fifth grade teacher, said that she liked it because it allowed kids to get gifts (for her) at a reasonable price and it teaches kids responsibility.

It wasn’t just the shoppers who had all the fun though. Mrs.Casagrande said that she was “so happy to see kids shop for their family.”

Mrs.Clark said, “I definitely had a lot of fun. I got to know some new moms and had a lot of fun.”

Some moms were a little nervous. Mrs. Cheesman said, “I had fun but I was scared and stressed the week before and during the actual holiday shop.”

Some people enjoyed the HHS without attending. Joy Weng, mother of a Hanaford student, loved it because “it teaches kids to think about friends and family during the holiday season.”

The holiday shop was a huge success and the Hanaford looks forward to next year.
