Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day

Please join us Tuesday, November 21, 2017  for Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day!

Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day is a time for each child to share school with his or her grandparent(s) or special family friend(s), for those whose grandparents are unable to attend.

This day is for all grades. New this year, all Monday, Wednesday, and Friday PreK and Early PreK classes will go to school on Tuesday rather than Monday to attend Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day.

As you come on to the Holland Hall campus, you will notice a big construction project. Construction has begun on our new building, the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center. Known as “the Tandy,” this building is part of our ongoing $50 million Common Ground campaign designed to honor the past, enhance the present, and ensure the future of Holland Hall.
