The school is taught from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday.  On Saturday afternoon, at the close of class, I will host a presentation of the Santa Claus Oath.  All Santas and Mrs. Claus from the region are most welcome to join the class in the Oath ceremony.  One does not need to attend the school in order to  participate in the ceremony.   Special Oath certificates, suitable for framing will be presented to all attendees.

And also, on Saturday evening, there will be a nice dinner locally,  in conjunction with the Palm Tree Santas.  Again, all regional Santas, Mrs. Claus, families and friends are most welcome to attend.  You do not need to attend the school in order to join us for dinner. (Seperate checks please.)
