Dear Parents,

We are one week away from our Help the Hollow auction event on Friday, November 8th, and WE NEED YOU THERE!!! Why???

  • Because we want more parents involved!
    We know that schools are more successful when they engage with parents, families and community members.
  • Because we need to raise more money!
    We need to continually raise more funds to allow us to purchase classroom supplies like paper, microscopes, and Chromebooks.
  • Because it will be fun!
    Our PTSA has a great evening planned with amazing food, drinks, games, and auction items available.

This is a casual event, and tickets are just $30 per person. Please consider joining us ... it will be a great evening and every dollar raised goes right back to our school. Get all the details and purchase tickets online at,

Ben Campopiano
Pine Hollow Middle School

PS... If you cannot join us on the 8th, please join the Pine Hollow PTSA page on Facebook to participate in some of the online auctions that are coming out to bid! Every dollar we raise goes right back to supporting our students and staff... and we need your support! Thank you!
