Breakfast with Santa

Breakfast with Santa is one of our most popular annual events: so popular, in fact, that it sells out on the first day almost every year!

Parents from each homeroom prepare themed baskets full of all kinds of gifts: from Legos, American Girl dolls, Gourmet foods and more. In the days leading up to the event, students buy raffle tickets for a chance to take home each of the basket.

On the event itself, more than 400 parents, students and siblings converge on the Saint Saviour High School Gym, which is transformed by our wonderful Parent Association volunteers to a winter wonderland. Breakfast is served and students get a chance to hand-deliver their letters to Santa and get a gift from Santa’s helpers.

Finally at the end of the event, Parent Association volunteers draw the winners of each basket, as well as a 50/50 raffle.
