Principal's Pen

Welcome Back and Happy New Year 2016!

I hope you had a wonderful winter break. It is hard to imagine that we are half-way through the school year. The rest of the 2015-2016 school year is sure to be filled with many exciting opportunities for your child and you to participate in while we continue to prepare our students academically. Below you will find a list of dates for January that will keep you informed of what is taking place at Mount Holly.

Again, thank you for all you do for our school.

Children First,

Little Free Library

Our school has received a Little Free Library that will be located outside of the cafeteria (the end of the car rider line when pulling away). This is an extra opportunity for your family to “borrow” books. If you have gently used books to donate, feel free to place them in the Little Free Library and return your borrowed books for others to enjoy. We are thankful to our district and student builders at the Applied Technology Center for providing this for our Mount Holly community of readers!


Congratulations to the following Terrific Kids for November.
