There are also many other exciting activities to experience at Christmas in Corkery. Outside, there will be sleigh rides and a bonfire. Inside the gym, there will be seasonal music, artwork to admire and you can make a donation and get your picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
You will also be able to purchase food tickets for chili and pizza, and enjoy a hot chocolate. There will also be popcorn and a bake sale. Only cash will be accepted for any food purchases.

Tickets will be sold for $1 per ticket in the gym and can be redeemed for:

Popcorn - $1
Chili (with corn chips) - $4
Pizza - $3
Gluten Free Pizza - $4
Juice - $1
Water - $1
There will also be baked goods that can be purchased by donation (at least $1 suggested).
Hot Chocolate will be provided for FREE!

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.

All members of our community are encouraged to bring a donation for the West Carleton Food bank that evening as well.

Thanks to all of the members of our School Council for their hard work on this event and to all members of our School Community who signed up to volunteer for the event.

We look forward to seeing everyone at 4:45pm.
