St. Paul’s Academy Preschool at Holly Hall

Heather Carter May 15, 2018

St. Paul’s Academy is proud to announce that the preschool building located at 3230 Meridian St. is now officially called Holly Hall. The preschool building has undergone exciting changes during the 2017-18 school year. A new building wrap and paint have transformed the exterior, and a generous preschool family donated a new playground structure, which led to additional improvements throughout the playground area. We would like to thank generous donors who have made these changes possible, and our school families for your support and patience during the construction process.

We celebrated the formal dedication of Holly Hall on Tuesday, May 15th with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by a reception for our special guests.  Former Board of Trustees President Robin Foote was instrumental in securing the funding for the new building wrap. Holly Hall is named for Robin’s sister Holly, who was a preschool teacher.
