Hopkinsville Community College and Christian County Public Schools are pleased to host Holiday Super Saturday, a jolly morning of learning and creativity for students in kindergarten through grade six. If you liked KICCS, you’ll love Holiday Super Saturday! We’ll provide snacks and a special holiday treat during a mid-morning break.
Each student will choose one hands-on workshop taught by enthusiastic and creative teachers for their grade level.
