University School of Jackson

Holiday Mart

Dear USJ Families,

As difficult as it is to share, we have decided to cancel the 2020 USJ Holiday Mart. This is especially painful considering this year would have been the 50th anniversary of the event.


This decision was not made lightly. Our Holiday Mart committee has spent months exploring all possible solutions even as the odds have been stacked higher and higher against us. Our top priority is to protect this beloved event's integrity, which means keeping our volunteers, merchants, and shoppers safe. 


We appreciate those of you who have supported us in the past. Please know that we recognize the cancellation of an event of this size has a significant impact on our school. We are actively working on alternative fundraising and school-wide event ideas for our Parents Club, and we welcome additional ideas from our families. If you have an idea you would like to share; please contact us at [email protected]


We hope that our 50th anniversary, although delayed, will be unforgettable.


Mark your calendars for November 18 - 21, 2021, when we can all be together again.
