Holden Christian Academy

Holden Christian Academy’s annual Trike-A-Thon fundraiser was a tremendous success! Our preschool and kindergarten students raised $4300 with the help of friends and family who sponsored them to ride for 30 minutes on our parking lot track. Our whole school came out to cheer them on, along with parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles!

This fundraiser aligns with our school wide Food For Life Program which promotes healthy living by engaging students in gardening, nutrition and fitness activities. All funds raised will be used to maintain and improve our certified Nature Explore outdoor classroom.
This beautiful courtyard play space has a building area, mud kitchen, water play area with working pump, a messy materials area, art areas, trees for climbing, rocking for jumping off, a sensory garden to wander through, an herb garden bed, lots of grassy space for running, rolling and enjoying fresh air and sunshine!

Our Nature Explore play space is well loved. Our preschool students use it daily and kindergarten students use it several times each week. To provide for the general maintenance for this beloved courtyard we will be adding more impact absorbing ground cover, landscaping rocks for drainage in our water play area, new signs for each area, and upkeep of our sensory garden and picnic table area.

We will be enhancing our space with the addition of a butterfly garden and pumpkin patch. We will also be purchasing a beautiful Akambira (outdoor xylophone) and creating a music wall using recycled materials attached to a pallet. We are very excited to have the funds for this mini reboot.
