  • General guideline of Breakfast with Santa – there is always something that needs to be done. I know it’s a long day – you will get a break after you perform and you will get all the snacks you can eat after we are done. Look for something to do or someone to interact with (public/kids – not friends) – please do not stand around chatting with your friends ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE IN A COSTUME! It be great if the characters from the same movie or story hang together.
  • If you are unsure of what you should be doing ask me or Mr. Browne.
  • Do not leave anything in the choir room when you leave – please pick up after yourself and each other.


We still need parent volunteers and donations. Please volunteer here.
