ALL FOR BOOKS- T-Rex vs. Velociraptor:

Our goal is to ensure that each and every student at HSES has the opportunity to choose at least one book that inspires them to read. We are seeking donations through the Scholastic All for Books program to help achieve that goal. This year, for every donation of $1 of more to the All for Books program, your child will receive a footprint to write their name on. Students will drop their coins and bills into a T-Rex or Velociraptor can to vote in the HSES T-Rex vs. Velociraptor contest. Who will win?!?

Volunteers Needed!

Our Book Fair cannot be a success without volunteers! Please visit our Sign Up Genius to see how you can help. Sign up for Volunteers: Sign up for Food Donations-

We look forward to seeing you and your family at our Book Fair!

Remember, all proceeds go to our library!

Resilience Film

Calling all Parents:

Bring flexible seating of your choice to ensure your comfort (beach chair, blanket, pillow, etc.) and join track 2 teachers, Mrs. Clark, and one of our own parents, Sam Trodgon for a special viewing of the 60 minute documentary film, Resilience on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 from 1:00-2:30 at the school. This time will also include a question/answer session.

Mr. Trodgon is on the Board of Directors for Advocates for Health in Action (AHA) which has been responsible for showing the film Resilience at Marbles Children's Museum. We will also share what Wake County is doing to promote Resilience and address Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Find out about the work that HSES is doing in the area of social emotional learning for our students outlined in the School Improvement Plan.

Please note, this event is for parents ONLY. See the flyer for more information. We hope you can make it and be a part of this event! Please RSVP to help us plan by clicking on the link:

Soccer Club

I am very excited to start a soccer club here at Holly Springs. I've played soccer since I was 4 years old and grew up having many coaches that impacted my life on and off the soccer field. My hope is to impact HSES students by creating lifelong memories while learning the game of soccer, just as I did.

Lindsay Vollmin, 1st & 2nd Grade Teacher
