Holiday Fair, Saturday November 22, 10-4  Early Bird Preview Adults Only, Friday, November 21, 5-6
One of the nicest events of the year is our Holiday Fair.  The great thing is that it is as much fun to help as it is to shop. The set up is a community event and sparks a festive spirit. Please watch the Bulletin for further information and opportunities to be helpful. We would love to encourage high school parent participation in the fair, specifically helping with decorations or with food and Alumni Cafe shifts.  It would be great to have parents from a variety of classes working together. This year there will also be a special adults only hour to shop without dragging your children along. Perfect time to purchase the gifts you want to keep secret.

Thanks for your help.

Planetarium Show and Lunch at Panda East, November 26, 10:30 -1:30
A much loved annual event is the Astronomy Class presentation at the Amherst College Planetarium. A couple of students from Mr. Weem’s 11th grade Astronomy class will present a topic that they have researched together to the entire high school. After the presentation everyone will walk down to Panda East for a Hartsbrook community pre-Thanksgiving Chinese lunch! We will collect a fee of approximately $10-15 for lunch in the week preceding this event. Generally, we are finished between 1-1:30. When possible we ask parents to pick up their students in Amherst. There will be a bus returning to Hartsbrook but pick up time will be a bit later than Elementary school dismissal of 12:45 on that day. Further details will be coming in an email later in the month.
