Pine Hollow Parents,

We are only two weeks away from Winter Break! With the semester winding down, please continue to remind your child to turn in late work, make up assignments, and complete test corrections when possible. The more we encourage students to finish the semester strong, the more likely they will experience success now and next semester. Also, please remind them to check HomeLink, ask questions in class, utilize their planner, and talk to their teachers before/after class if they need some extra help.

Finally, please consider having your child login to iReady a few times over the next month to work on their math skills. This extra work will support their efforts in math class and help them during the iReady Diagnostic #2 that they will be taking in early January. Our goal is for students to continue to make progress on their math grades and math mastery, and iReady shows us how they are doing and where they stand.

Thank you for your continued support and Go Mustangs!

Ben Campopiano
Pine Hollow Middle School
