Holly Days

On December 4th and 5th, the students and staff will transform Sanderson into a festive holiday market with local vendors, one-of-a-kind crafts, silent auction gift baskets and so much more! In preparation for our school's largest fundraiser, we need donations. The Silent Auction Gift Baskets are made solely from your contributions, so all the proceeds go directly towards supporting Sanderson programs.

We are looking for donations of any kind that can include pre-made gift baskets, items from our Amazon Wishlist, and empty baskets to package all of your generous donations in. Donations can be sent or brought to the main office. Please be sure to label items for Holly Days. You can also donate directly to Holly Days here. Thank you!

Parents can create an account in Canvas to monitor their child's progress. To do this, the student must generate a pairing code for the parent to use when creating an account.
