Reception for Elementary Art Show

Each Fall, all Rock Hill School District 3 Elementary Schools participate in an Elementary Art Exhibit at the Center for the Arts in Downtown Rock Hill. This year’s submission by Mount Holly Elementary is a compilation of Fourth and Fifth grade drawings of insects, from observation. While we have many talented artists and a wide selection of awesome drawings, our space for display is limited.

Congratulations to the following students whose work has been selected to represent our school: Jaylen Ramirez, Jackson Ludlam, Eli Sanders, Adelyn Parker, Caden Gibson, Leila Dittenhoefer, Lucas Blanton, Kamorien Dunham, Shyla Wingo, Ava McDaniel, Jaysie Gonzalez, Brody Bemis, Cooper Robinson, Tatiana Perez, Carson Smith, Karl Burg, Maggie Miner, Ashley Dover, Addison Thomas, and Paige Robinson

NOVEMBER 1, 2019

Mount Holly Elementary School will be celebrating International Walk to School Day on Friday, November 1, 2019. We will be having the event at school during your child’s special area classes since we don’t have any students that walk to our school. Our celebration is going to be about Fitness and trying to keep your children active EVERYDAY! We will be trying to successfully complete 825 miles total as a school, so please encourage your children to wear tennis shoes and dress appropriately for walking outdoors! You are more than welcome to come and walk with your child during their special area time on this day (see bottom for list of times). For more information on International Walk to School Day, visit .

Thank you for your support!
