What is Secret Snowflake?

You are probably familiar with Secret Santa. This year, we've decided as a school to update our version of this beloved tradition. From now on, it will be known as Secret Snowflake. We made this change because we always aim to be an inclusive community, and we recognize that not all of our students celebrate the Christmas holiday.

How does it work?

Once students have chosen their Secret Snowflake out of a hat, the fun begins!  In the first two weeks, students bring in two small handmade gifts to give, one for each week.  Ideas include cards, drawings, origami, baked goods, or a fun healthy snack. On the last day of school before the break, December 21, students bring in a wrapped gift that is valued between $10 and $15 for a gift exchange, during which time the Secret Snowflakes are revealed!

If you have questions about Secret Snowflake, please contact your class teacher.
