Hello, Hollymead!

We are coming into the home stretch of the school year, and we are excited about all the fun activities planned for our students in these final weeks. Check out this week's Buzz, the school newsletter, for more information about School Wide Morning Meeting, Field Day, Class Placement Surveys, and more.

As a reminder, we will be hosting our last Board Meeting of the year on Tuesday, May 31st at 7:00 PM at Hollymead. We will also have a virtual option available through our regular Zoom link. We have several Board positions open for next year, so if you are interested in joining the PTO, this meeting will be a great way to meet current Board members and ask questions!

We've wrapped up our after school clubs for the year. Thank you to our volunteers Katie Arostegui and Carolina Lopez for hosting Cheer Club and Yoga Club. The kids loved it!

Once again, thank you to everyone for your support this year.

Go Hornets!
