Purposeful Gift-Giving | 45 Christian School Educator Inspired Gift Ideas For Your Child
In keeping with our school mission, OVCA faculty and staff came up with a list of Christmas gift ideas that would aid your child's development spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. Most of the suggestions are inexpensive, and some might remind you of gifts you received as a child. You never know-- one of these could end up steering your child toward a new passion or talent you didn't realize was there. We have also included links for convenience and easy ordering. Plus, if you order from Amazon using these links, a portion of the total is returned to OVCA! It's a win-win! Happy shopping!
