The Holiday Hill Shop is a cherished Belmont Hill tradition. The shop is an annual fundraiser for the school hosted by the Parents’ Council. In the shop, students and parents have an opportunity to buy Belmont Hill apparel and gifts. Originally this was the only time Belmont Hill logo merchandise could be purchased. However, in response to demand from alumni, parents, and past parents, a shop was introduced online in January 2020. The introduction of an online shop, which allowed for full-year access to Belmont Hill merchandise, was well received by the community. With the arrival of the new online store, the Holiday Hill Shop evolved into a special holiday shop for parents. I spoke with Mrs. Farkas, the Director of Parent Engagement, who gave me the majority of the information in this article.
In 2020, when Covid hit, the Holiday Hill Shop had to go online in addition to the already existing shop. The Holiday Hill shop was held over five days in October, increasing the access for parents and students. This year, the Holiday Hill Shop featured the online event in October and will feature a pop-up shop in December with stocking stuffers and last-minute gifts. The event will be held on December 2, from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm, for the parent community. Any items may be purchased after the event by contacting the Parents’ Council office. Make sure to check out the Hill Shop when it arrives this December!
