 Brockport High School is getting in the holiday spirit with multiple upcoming events for the holiday season. Situated right next to The College at Brockport's campus, Brockport High School holds many events to participate in the community. 

The students of the Brockport Central School District are a huge part of the life at the Village of Brockport.

Saturday, Dec. 10, the high school's freshman class is holding the annual "Breakfast with Santa" event. This event is to fundraise for the 2020 class for future events such as prom, class t-shirts and building supplies for the homecoming float. 

"Breakfast with Santa" will take place in the high school's cafeteria from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is open to the public, $8 per adult and $5 per child, or $28 for a family of five. This price includes an all-you-can-eat breakfast of sausage and pancakes, family pictures with Santa, crafts and caroling with the elves. Students are to reserve their spots with their teachers in order to attend this event. 

The music departments are also harnessing the holiday spirit with multiple concerts throughout December; the middle school and high school have three holiday themed concerts scheduled to celebrate the upcoming holidays and spread the joy of this time of year. 

The first concert held by the middle school is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m., along with another one on Thursday, Dec. 8, again at 7 p.m. The high school will take the stage on Tuesday, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m. 

All of these district concerts are free to the public, and encourage people to join in the festivities through their brilliant music departments.

Students of the National Honor Society (NHS) are collecting toys for the annual Toy Drive in the high school cafeteria. The Toy Drive was created to give families who cannot afford presents the chance to pick up gifts for their children. 

Toys can be chosen for each family member under 17 years old. 

This organization has helped so many families over the years be able to afford the Christmas or holiday they've always wanted. 

Anyone can donate toys, books, and the like to the Toy Drive, if they are new and still in the package. 

The students of NHS help with the Toy Drive to ensure everyone can get all the gifts they need to make their holiday a success. Collection for the Toy Drive is set to run from Monday, Dec. 12 to Friday, Dec. 23. 

Together, the Brockport community and the Brockport High School are working to get the village in the holiday spirit. 

As we all know, this time of year can be hard for so many people. Events like the Toy Drive and "Breakfast with Santa" help remind us of the joy this time of year can bring.
