School Schedule

Santa spends a lot of his time during the year at his North Pole home, resting and making new plans for the next Christmas, consulting with Mrs Claus and instructing his elves on new toy construction techniques.  Once in awhile he travels south to impart a little of his accumulated wisdom to his wannabe helpers. Santa Gordon’s Santa and the Business of Being Santa (SatBoBS) Santa School is a concise, 2-day instructive course in how to best portray the big guy in the red suit himself.

Our instructors, Santa Gordon, Santa Bob McMasters, Santa Ron Vedder, Santa Tom Carmody, and Santa Keith Alton, are all offering Santa Gordon’s complete, expanded two-day Santa school*, with copies of his set of workshop manuals (2014/17, 2015/17, and 2016/17). This Santa School is only $250 and only $100 for an accompanying Mrs Claus or elf, sharing the textbooks. Please see the Purchase by PayPal buttons adjacent to every school for reservation information.

As each instructor adds to his school schedule, dates, locations, and times will be updated for you.
