Dear Parents,

Thank you for attending Back to School Night last week! We had a great turnout and our staff was excited to meet you and introduce themselves to you. If you missed B2SN, please feel free to email your child's teachers to introduce yourselves to them so that they can learn a bit more about you and your child.

A special thank you to the Pine Hollow PTSA for providing snacks and refreshments for all the families who attended! This created a warm welcome for all attendees and set the tone for a positive and welcoming evening. Parents... if you are interested in joining the PTSA, please come to the first meeting of the year this Wednesday, August 29 at 6:30pm in the Library. They have open board positions to fill, and they will be discussing fundraisers and activities for the year. For more information and to stay up to date with the PTSA, please please follow them on Facebook! Thank you,

Ben Campopiano

Principal, Pine Hollow Middle School

Student Planners

All Pine Hollow Middle School students received a Student Planner free of charge on the first day of class from their 2nd period teacher. Each student should bring their planner each day to every class, and should utilize it for scheduling and organizational purposes. Parents ... please help us support this effort by checking your child's planner to make sure they are utilizing it every day for all of their classes!
