I’ve been retired from a long career as an elementary school teacher for about 2 years now and have loved every minute of it. I love being able to wake up whenever I want to, spend long lazy days with my dog, run my errands during the middle of the day when the stores are dead and spend time with family and friends rather than prepping or grading or lesson planning. Even though retirement has been such a wonderful and fulfilling change for me, I am still very much invested in public education and really enjoy volunteering weekly at the local elementary school with my husband.
In an effort to give back, we are really excited to have an opportunity to partner with a few local public schools to join their fundraising efforts. Everyone is familiar with the typical fundraisers that usually consist of items like wrapping paper, chocolate, popcorn and entertainment books so we think it will be really fun to be able to add our Pretty in Gingham products to that list.
We’re excited to feature some new items and some old favorites in new patterns and styles like this fun Aloha print that is perfect for Spring and Summer.
If you’re in the Southern California area and are interested in partnering with us for a fundraiser for your local public school, we would love to hear from you. Have a wonderful weekend friends!
