Pine Hollow News: December 14, 2020

Dear Parents,

As we wind down the 1st Semester, I want to commend you and your child for your hard work so far this year. This has been one of the most challenging school semesters in history, and we are extremely proud of the effort put forth by our students and families. Please take some time with your child over Winter Break to celebrate their successes and honor their progress. We will be announcing Honor Roll students and other award winners in January, but we are truly proud of every single one of our students this year. Thank you and Go Mustangs!
