Pine Hollow Parents,

We have now completed our second full week, and although a number of schedule changes have occurred, students and staff are starting to find their footing and settle into their routines. Please check in with your child this weekend to ensure that they have the right books, supplies, and resources to be successful in each class. Reach out to your teachers if there's any questions or confusion, and feel free to come to the main office from 7:00am-4:00pm if you need support. Finally, please ask your child about their student planner, review it with them, and give them some positive feedback for using it consistently. Thanks and have a great long, Labor Day Weekend! Best,

Ben Campopiano
Pine Hollow Middle School
