A Bi-Weekly Newsletter from the Hollymead PTO
February 27, 2022
Happy (almost) March! Now that the weather is getting a little warmer it certainly feels like spring is just around the corner. The third semester is flying by!
This coming week is Read Across America Week and all Hollymead students are invited to participate by showing their bookish spirit! The theme schedule for the week is as follows:
- Monday - Hats Off to Reading (wear a hat)
- Tuesday - PAWSitively Wild About Reading (wear animal-print clothing or clothing with an animal on it)
- Wednesday - Team Up for Reading (wear a sports shirt)
- Thursday - Snuggle Up and Read! (Wear pajamas)
As a reminder, Friday, March 4th is a Teacher Work Day so there will be no school for students.
We also wanted to extend a big THANK YOU! to everyone who donated to our most recent Stock the Lounge for Hollymead staff. And of course thank you to our wonderful Hospitality volunteers, Shannon Hall and Allison Argawal! We’re so grateful to be able to show such appreciation for our awesome Hollymead staff!
A few additional dates for your calendars include:
- Wednesday, March 2nd - PTO Board Meeting (7:30 PM)
- Friday. March 11th - Kids Night Out (6:00 PM)
- Saturday, March 26th - Hollymead Talent Show (4:00 PM)
Events are definitely starting to pick up as the weather (and COVID numbers!) improve, and we’re excited to hopefully be able to host more events this spring. As we solidify more events, we will be sure to keep you updated through newsletters and social media. Stay tuned, and go Hornets!
