December and January 2017

Inspiring and Empowering Every Student to Thrive Every Day

Winter is almost here! We have some exciting events happening in December and January. Parent Conferences will continue until December 8th. This is an opportunity for families and teachers to communicate and collaborate to help our students. Please be sure to take advantage of this opportunity. Also, the Book Fair will be from Monday December 11th through Wednesday the 13th during lunch, and after school from 2:00-3:30 p.m. The Book Fair would not be possible without the help of parent volunteers. Thank you to Leeza Zepp for taking charge of this, and to all of the parent volunteers who will give their time to make this a success! Beach Pelicans know that the holiday season is about giving. Students will be collecting canned goods for Food Share through the week of December 1st. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Winter break will be from December 18th through January 2nd. We will be starting school on Wednesday, January 3rd, 2019. Enjoy this special time of year, and the time off with your family. Thank you for being part of the Hollywood Beach School family.

Happy Holidays!

Mrs. Lipsett

Parent Conferences

Parent Conferences are a great opportunity for teachers and parents to communicate regarding the progress of students. They are scheduled for November 27th through December 8th. There is early dismissal for First through Sixth grades these two weeks. Dismissal times are 1:10 p.m. for first through third grades, and 1:15 p.m. for 3rd-6th grades.


The last day of school for 2017 is Friday, December 15th. It is a minimum day with dismissal at 11:00 a.m.


Please remember to contact the office by phone or note if your child is ill. Otherwise the absence is marked unexcused. After three unexcused absences, a student is considered truant. Also, three tardies greater than 30 minutes are considered an absence. Thank you for bringing your child to on time every day, unless they are sick. Attendance really matters!
