We would like to extend an invitation to your family to join us for this event if your schedule will allow. The dinner is $10 per person for parents, family members and day students (boarding students are not charged, as this is their evening meal). In order to properly plan for food and seating, we must ask you to make reservations by the end of business Friday, Dec. 4. To make your reservation, please visit our online payment portal.

After identifying the correct student account, select "Christmas Dinner" and enter the number of people in your party (include any day students but NOT boarding students in your count). You may pay for the meal by credit card or by e-check. If you prefer to pay in cash, you may do so through Mrs. Dollar at the Carroll Hall Reception Desk.

We are expecting a full house for this meal, so please reserve your spot as soon as possible as it could be a sell-out! We encourage families to arrive for the meal by 6 p.m. in order to find a table to accommodate your group.
