Box Tops for Education Made Easier
No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school’s Box Tops earnings online.
Twice a year, your school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs!

Common Grounds Coffee Shop – New Hours
Beginning Monday, September 9 the Common Grounds Coffee Shop in the Tandy has new hours. It will be open Monday – Friday from 7:30 – 10:50 am and 1:30 – 4 pm.
Also, parents can now use their credit card to make purchases in the coffee shop. Hang out in the Tandy while waiting on your student after school, meet your friends for coffee and a snack, or have your next meeting in the coffee shop.
Volunteering at Holland Hall is a wonderful way to spend time with your child during the school day, get to know other parents, help raise money that directly impacts your child’s school experience, and participate in fun events that benefit the entire community.
Parents who plan to volunteer in the Dutch Zone, lunchrooms and classrooms will need to complete a background check through KeepN Track.
Once your background check is approved, you will receive an email telling you where you can get a volunteer ID card. You will use that card when you check in to volunteer on campus. These background checks are good for 3 years. After 3 years, you will need to fill out the KeepN Track application again.
