• Carnival Focuses on Health and Wellness of the Whole Child

    On April 28 Holliday Montessori hosted its first ever Health Carnival. It was the dream of Principal Barlow to see the students take their fun to another level, implementing health and wellness with the focus of taking care of the whole child. The fair was well attended with nearly 300 people.The fair offered bounce houses, a MAP letter writing station, rock painting, Children’s Mercy with Fit Tastic, and the HyVee Healthy You dietician truck. Some families won gift cards donated by school partners and they were even given a healthy lunch. It was an overall great event.

  • Safety by Choice, Not by Chance!

    Nearly 150 families within the Ingels Elementary community enjoyed the school’s Safety by Choice, Not by Chance event April 14. The engagement event focused upon five safety rules:

    I … if you feel unsafe, leave the place

    N … Never play in hidden areas

    G … Go in pairs

    E … Expand your Bubble

    L ... Look for help

    S … Say no and run

    The day promotes awareness of resources available throughout local community organizations and provides tools to help families keep their community safe. Through the school’s Caring for Kids partners – Turn the Page KC, LINC, The VIP Movement, United Believers Community Church, Pillars of Truth Church, and St. James/Renaissance Church – as well as many other organizations in the community, helped provide a fun-filled afternoon with food, a pie throwing contest, and numerous booths with free resources and fun activities for the kids.
