It can be hard to shop for little Johnny’s Christmas present when little Johnny is right there.

With that in mind, the Future Business Leaders of America students at Freeman High School will host their annual Freeman Cares 4 Kids event on Sunday. Parents are invited to drop off their children for a few hours of fun while they do a little shopping.

The afternoon will be crammed with activities, including basketball, Wiffle ball, crafts, movies, games and a jumping castle. Refreshments will be provided. All children age 5 and up may attend. Donations will be accepted.

The event will run from noon to 5 p.m. at the school, at 14626 S. Jackson Road, just off Highway 27.

And the award goes to …

West Valley City School teachers Matthew Phillipy and Stephen Schreiner were recently recognized as Outstanding Formal Environmental Educators of the Year by the Environment Education Association of Washington.

The award is given to teachers in a K-12 program who are leaders in environmental education, inspire others to change their environmental habits or positively impacted the environment.

Arts and crafts fair

East Farms Elementary will close out its winter arts and crafts sale today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the East Farms PTSA. The school is at 26203 E. Rowan Ave.
