Grover Cleveland School with local artists to reimagine Holday Shop




RAHWAY, NJ - This holiday shopping season will be a bit more unique for the students at Grover Cleveland Elementary School in Rahway. The school's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is proud to sponsor their annual Holiday Shop for students, so they can purchase gifts for their loved ones.

This year, the PTA was motivated to support the local community by offering an expanded selection of hand-made, high-quality gift selections by local artisans and small businesses from across the Garden State (including Rahway).

The benefit of this new approach is not only to entice shoppers with more unique gift choices, but to help stimulate the local economy. An assorted variety of these quality items will enhance the shopping experience and will be priced at just $5 or less.

The Holiday Shop will be available for students from December 20-22, but will also be open to the public.  The community is welcome to visit the Holiday Shop on Tuesday, December 20 from 6-8pm.

Other upcoming Grover Cleveland events include:

Scholastic Book Fair - February 14-162017
Bowl-A-Rama with Your Mama- April 2, 2017
