Planetarium Show and Panda East, November 25
It is a Hartsbrook High School tradition that the 11th Grade Astronomy class present a planetarium show at Amherst College on the morning before the Thanksgiving break. The entire school attends. After the presentation we all head over to Panda East and have a meal together. Students are asked to bring in $10 in advance and there are several family style dishes served, An email will be sent in the third week in November to alert you to sending in the $10. We provide transportation to and from Amherst but encourage families to pick their students up in Amherst. The exact time will be announced.

Solstice Celebration, December 17
This year we will hold our high school solstice celebration right here on our own soil at Hartsbrook! Joyous song, poetry and dance will be followed by an outdoor fire where we will roast chestnuts, sing to our animals and indulge in other festivities. There will be two seatings, one at 4:30 and the other at 7:30. Please call the high school office to reserve a seat for your choice of time and plan to stay late or come early to enjoy the warmth and light of our fire as we tend it from dusk to dark.
