Dining Night Out

Did you know December 8th is a half-day of school? Now lunch or dinner can be taken care of by dining-in or taking-out at Martin’s Grill. Martin’s will donate a portion of ALL SALES on Wednesday, December 8 to the Hollymead Elementary PTO. No special code or flyer is necessary. Support a local business AND our school! It’s a win-win!

  • Time to connect and play with friends
  • Dynamic and fun education on the fundamentals of good nutrition
  • Kid-friendly plant-based snacks

Here’s what parents can expect:

  • A safe, supportive, and inclusive space for your child to play
  • Careful adherence to current Covid safety standards
  • A fun opportunity for you to test drive the Camp4Real winter break and summer camp experience
  • A few hours off to enjoy adult time to yourself
