Pine Hollow Parents,

We have just four school days left this semester, and with Friday being a Minimum Day, we will be on Winter Break in no time! Please have your child complete as much make-up work as they are allowed to prior to the break, and encourage them to speak with their teachers if they have outstanding projects or tests to complete. You can always check HomeLink for the most up to date grades, assignments, attendance, and test scores for your kids. Thank you for your support and have a great break, a happy holiday season, and a Happy New Years! See you in 2020!

Change for Change ... Last Day Tomorrow!

Over the last three weeks, our student Leadership Class has led the charge to raise over $700 via our Change for Change fundraiser to help a homeless family in our district! This is already a huge success, but we are hoping to get to $800 by the end of the day tomorrow! If you have a bowl of loose change at home, please consider sending it with your child tomorrow so they can submit it to their Homeroom teacher! Thank you for your support!

Dine & Donate at Chipotle Tomorrow

Click below for more information about the PTSA's Dine & Donate at Chipotle tomorrow, December 17th. Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to Pine Hollow Middle School PTSA!

Minimum Day Friday

This Friday, December 20th is the last day of the 1st Semester and is a Minimum Day for Pine Hollow students. Early dismissal is at 11:43am and you can view the Minimum Day Bell Schedule here.

iReady Diagnostic #2 Coming in January

If you are looking for a way for your child to stay sharp over the break, please have them work on their iReady practice lessons in Math and English! With the Diagnostic #2 coming up in January, this will help them excel on the test and support them in their regular classes. Students know how to login to iReady ... they'll just need a little extra encouragement from you!
