All-school information

Masks will be optional in all indoor spaces next week. Check Dutch Weekly for any changes in that status next Friday.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week set

Let’s make sure our teachers and staff hear us when we say thank you! The Parents’ Association hospitality team has planned five days of tasty snacks and lunches that will take place Feb. 14-18 in the branch lounges.

A portion of the meals are funded by the PA, but we rely on parents bringing food items to make this event happen. Please look for signups going out via class coordinators next week and help show our appreciation. Kind words mean just as much or more — why not let someone at Holland Hall know how thankful you are!

Dutch Exchange will be open Wednesday, February 16, for shopping.

The room is full, so donations won't be taken for awhile but please come by and shop. Dutch Exchange is free to the community. Find gently used uniforms, as well as athletic and spirit wear.
