Don't forget the Dutch Exchange

As the year nears an end, has your child outgrown their uniforms? Need new shorts or uniform shirts? Choose from carefully curated, gently used khaki and navy shorts and pants, as well as primary, middle, and upper school shirts and skirts, in all sizes.

Dutch Exchange is located in the Dutch Zone in the Tandy and is open Wednesdays from 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., Thursdays from 8-10 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., Fridays from 8-10 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., and by request at the front desk.

Do you have a donation for the Dutch Exchange? You may drop off outgrown, clean, gently used Dutch outerwear, pants, shorts, skirts, jumpers, and shirts in the yellow bin near Ms. Silkman's desk in the Tandy anytime the Tandy is open.  Please check for stains, rips, and tears before dropping your items off.  Please donate only uniforms and Dutchwear in good condition that you would want your child to wear.  Thank you!

Are you interested in volunteering at the Dutch Zone or Dutch Exchange next year? Each comes with a 20 percent discount pass in the Dutch Zone, and it's a chance to meet other parents and get to know the students. Contact Ashley Parrish, aparrish@hollandhall.org, for more information.

Visit our Cold War Era Living Museum

Please join us at the 8th grade Cold War Era Living Museum on Monday, May 15.

For the past six weeks, 8th grade students have studied the Cold War Era and created projects for their social studies final. In creating these projects, student's moved from researching the facts, to historical inquiry, and finally to the creation of a project and presentation that allows students to bring the subject to life. Each student picked a topic and will tell the story of experiences in this period of time. The goal is for students to understand what conditions and issues led to mistrust between the U.S. and USSR, thereby leading to the Cold War. Our hope is that they will be able to apply these lessons to the world they are living in today.

Each student has prepared a 1-2 minute presentation as well as a visual representation for their specific topic. Please feel free to move from presentation to presentation as students explain their topics. Students may wear costumes to school on the 15th. Costumes may be simple items found around the house; they do not need to be purchased.

The Museum is set for 11 a.m. to noon on Monday, May 15, in the Middle School BT. You may enter through the main Tandy doors.
