4th Annual Fall Festival
The Hamline Elementary community welcomes families, friends, and neighbors to join them for the 4th Annual Fall Festival on Sat., Oct. 7, from 12-4:30pm, on the field behind the school at 1599 Englewood Ave. This free, family-friendly event will include live entertainment, bounce house, face-painting, games and activities, food for purchase, a bake sale, and a community expo filled with vendors and exhibitors representing great local businesses and organizations. All proceeds from the event go towards arts and awesome experience programming at Hamline Elementary. Everyone is welcome—hope to see you there!

School supply success
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Because of a generous school community and wonderful neighbors, we were able to provide 20+ full backpacks and enough extra supplies to support Hamline families who join us throughout the year. What a wonderful show of love and support and a great way to start the school year!

Community weave weekend
And while you’re at the Fall Festival, be sure to stop by an amazing community art project happening on the same block, at the same time. After almost two years of dreaming and planning, it’s time to transform an ordinary fence at into an extraordinary work of art.

Friends and neighbors of all ages and abilities are welcome to weave colorful strips of fabric onto the fence in front of Hancock Recreation Center under the direction of Twin Cities artist Denise Tennen on Sat., Oct. 7, from 10am-6pm and Sun., Oct. 8, from 10am-4pm. A celebration will follow with oven-fresh pizza provided by Hamline Church.

Hamline Elementary is honored to partner with amazing local organizations to bring this community art event to the Midway. The project is possible with the generous financial support from Hamline Church, the Hamline to Hamline Collaboration, and Midway Men’s Club, and logistical support from Hamline Midway Coalition, Hancock Recreation Center, and Midway Murals.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Hamline ECFE at Hancock Rec Center
Hamline Elementary has partnered with Hancock Recreation Center and St. Paul Public Schools to bring a free, weekly, drop-in program, led by professional staff, to the Midway.
