Mount Holly Roundup - 11/22/19

Mount Holly Elementary School Mustangs

Message from Mrs. Jones

I hope you had a good week!


Today we had a Glow Party for student incentives from the Fall Fundraiser. Third grade students also had an onsite-field study from Diamond Del's Gem Mining Adventure. Students were able to mine for their very own gem collection and learn about rock and mineral classification and identification. See snapshots from both events below.


As we gear up for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I encourage you all to reflect on what you are truly thankful for and celebrate food, family and fun on your time off.


No school on Wednesday, November 27th - Friday, November 29th. We look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday, December 2nd.


Thanks and have a good weekend!

The Reading Buddy Program is the pairing of an elementary student with an adult for 30 minutes each week. The pair spend time building a relationship and reading and conversing about the books they read. Mount Holly is thankful for our Reading Buddy Volunteers!


This week we highlight Mr. Scott Carroll and Cody McClure as our Reading Buddy Pair! Mr. Carroll has been a Reading Buddy since 2017.
