Accokeek Academy PTSA hosting holiday event -- Gazette.Net


The Accokeek Academy PTSA will host its second annual Dinner with Santa Claus, and is asking parents and students to attend as a way to bring students and parents together and collect donations for classroom supplies.

The event will take place 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 21 in the Eugene Burroughs campus of the academy, which houses grades pre-kindergarten through five.

During the festivities, which include photos with Santa Claus, food, music and activities for children, the PTSA will be collecting school supply donations such as disinfecting wipes, facial tissues and hand sanitizer.

Each attendee also will be entered into a drawing to win door prizes such as a holiday gift basket and four tickets to ICE! at Gaylord National to see Shrek the Halls.

Donors will be entered to win a pair of tickets to see the play “Our Town,” showing at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C.

Pre-ordered tickets cost $5 for students and $6 for adults, or $7 each if paid at the event.
