Holland Hall Upper School Theatre Presents ...

'Sense & Sensibility'
By Kate Hamill, based on the novel by Jane Austen

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. "Sense and Sensibility" examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

When: October 6-8
Where: Walter Arts Center, Newman Theatre
Times: Doors open at 6:30 p.m., Show begins at 7 p.m.
Tickets: Adults $10 / Students $7

Each club and class hosts a booth activity in which children can participate. There will be over 25 booths again this year, including the Octopus Toss ...

Each booth costs a certain amount of tickets, and tickets cost 50 cents each. You can pay with cash or check but NOT with credit cards.

PRIMARY SCHOOL

Class pictures set

Monday, October 3 is class group pictures and picture retakes. Please wear uniforms.

Navigating Primary School car lines

Please continue to use the car line for drop-off in the mornings. If you need to walk with your child, please go only as far as the front door. Remember parking is extremely limited, and it is often more efficient to use the curbside drop-off service.

Kindergarten morning drop-off is in the front of the school and afternoon pick-up at the EDP circle on the east side of the Primary School.

For students in kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade, the school day begins at 8 a.m. Curbside drop-off service begins at 7:50 a.m. Please do not leave your child unattended on the front porch before this time. For students in EPK, PreK, and JK, the school day begins at 9 a.m. Curbside drop-off service begins at 8:55 a.m.

On late start Wednesdays, curbside car service begins at 8:45 a.m. All cars, including PreK cars, should use the inside line to avoid “cutting off” other drivers. All drivers should remain in the curb lane until you reach the drop-off area. There is no morning merging.

During dismissal, 1st grade families should be in the inside lane closest to the school building, while Second grade families should be in the outside lane. We will direct traffic to allow for the crossover of lanes.

We all appreciate your attention to these guidelines. They ensure a safe and efficient experience for everyone.

A reminder about drop-off and pick-up times

The building opens each morning at 7:45 a.m. (8:45 a.m. on Wednesdays). If you need to drop off your child before then, before-school care is available.

Pick-up times are staggered to reduce traffic. If your child is out of school at 3:10, please arrive near that time. Those with children dismissed later than that due to clubs and sports, please arrive after the early pick-up line has been through so that you are not blocking the driveways. The first carpool is over by 3:20 or sooner.
