Christmas in Corkery Information

posted Dec 3, 2018, 7:04 AM by St. Michael ‎(Corkery)‎ School

Our Christmas in Corkery community event will be held on Thursday, December 13th, from 4:45pm to 6:30pm. The highlight is always the performance, which will have a nativity theme and will be held on the outdoor stage from approximately 5:00pm to 6:30pm, but there are also many other exciting activities to experience.
Outside, there will be sleigh rides and a bonfire. Inside the gym, there will be seasonal music, artwork to admire and a chance to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. You will also be able to purchase food tickets for chili and pizza, and enjoy a hot chocolate. Of course, both inside and outside, you will be able to visit with friends and enjoy the company of members of the school community. The weather for this event can be unpredictable, but it will proceed as scheduled, rain (snow) or shine. As the performance and other portions of the evening will be held outside, all students and members of our school community should be dressed appropriately for the weather.
