Pine Hollow Middle School

June 1, 2020

Dear Parents,

Wow... what a year! I'm so proud of our students for remaining positive during challenging times and persevering when things got tough. We continually saw students striving to be their best, and were all so impressed to see kids continue to grow and improve even during the school closure. I know this was hard on everyone, so please give your children lots of hugs and high fives as they finish the year - their efforts deserve applause from all of us. And please accept a huge THANK YOU from our staff for taking on the role of our teaching assistants at home! I know it wasn't easy, but we appreciated all you did to help your children fill in the gaps where we could not from afar. Thank you!


I will be in touch in the coming weeks and months as our state, county, district and school site map out plans for the fall. It will be a unique start, but hopefully smooth. My goal is to continually communicate our plans and how it will impact your children. Thank you for always supporting Pine Hollow and for helping to make it the great school it is! Have a great final week, a great summer, and Go Mustangs!

Grades

All students will be receiving CREDIT or NO CREDIT for both Quarter 4 and Semester 2. These grade marks will be determined by the grades students earned during 3rd Quarter, and how they have engaged with the work this quarter.


If your child received an A, B, or C during Quarter 3, they will be given a CREDIT mark for that class for Quarter 4 and Semester 2. Report Cards will be mailed out the week of June 8th. Please contact your teachers if you have questions about assignments, scores, or grades.
