The Charles W Howard Santa Claus School in Michigan in the oldest Santa Claus School in the country, started back in 1937! Charles Howard was the Santa in the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade for almost 20 years, from 1948-1965.

For decades, the school has taught students in the ways of both Santa and Mrs Claus. And they are still having school this year, from October 1-3. In person! Take that, 2020!
