Annual Breakfast and Holiday Gift Shop

On Saturday, December 8, come enjoy a continental breakfast complete with bagels, donuts, and fruit (gluten-free options available) and do a little holiday shopping! Students will have the opportunity to shop for everyone, enjoy a craft, participate in a door prize, and enjoy musical performances from some of our Dirksen students. The 5th and 6th grade orchestra will perform at 9:30 a.m. and the 6th grade band will perform at 10:00 a.m. If you didn’t get a chance to order advance tickets, don’t worry. Tickets will be sold at the door for $3 a person. For more fun, students can come in their pajamas!

New this year, students will have the opportunity to shop in-school on Monday, December 10 over the course of the full day, rather than just at lunch. Stay tuned for more information on this.

As with any event, we will need volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering for the Dirksen Breakfast contact Sarah Tancredi at and for volunteering for the Holiday Gift Shop contact Annette Barnitz at
