Hollymead Fun Fair

COME ONE! COME ALL! The Hollymead Spring Family Fun Fair is TOMORROW from 4-6pm!

Get ready for a fun day of carnival games, a bouncy house, photo booth, crafts, face painting, pizza, and more! Great for all ages!

This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, but it requires volunteers to be successful. We are still in need of help running game booths at the fair. This is a fun job that you can even do with older children or teenagers.
Use the link below to sign up to volunteer.

Thank you to everyone who came out last night to learn about Arts Integration at Hollymead.  We heard from several members of the Arts Integration team about how they are working together and collaborating with teachers and specialists to help students learn and access curriculum in a more meaningful way!  We saw examples of how our students are participating in this unique and rich program!  To learn more, see our meeting minutes here: 3.19.18 PCC Minutes
