Big picture

As we look back at our last 9 weeks of virtual learning we have all been gifted a peek into the daily lives of our students, for better or worse. These moments are part of our 2020-21 Hollymead year, and we want you to share them with each other. Please consider submitting photos of your kids for this year's yearbook. This will be a memento of one of our children's shared moments in time. They may not be physically together, but we are all in this experience together.


We Are In This Together

Looking for support? Have grade specific questions? Want to get to know your fellow parents? The PTO is here to help. We have gathered a list of grade specific private Facebook groups. If you are interested in joining click on the appropriate link below:

More information on fall clubs and activities will be coming out soon, stay tuned.

Box Tops Collection

Box Tops for Education collection time is upon us! We have a great opportunity to raise some money through those little clippings. Many I suspect are already using the App to scan receipts as I see that we already have some money on there and it keeps rising, so thanks for your efforts! If you haven't yet, download the app and/or more general info.

Despite the digital option, there are still some physical, clipped box tops out there, of course. We have permission from Principal Dommer to drop off these box tops at Hollymead on any supply/library/etc. pick-up days so when you come through, bring your box tops for the bin through the end of October. For this collection, any with a date of November 2020 and beyond are eligible. Please help out and have your box tops in an envelope or ziploc bag for ease of exchange. Sorting for eligible dates will also be especially appreciated this year.

This is a great way to raise some funds and help support our Hollymead School; thanks for your efforts!
