Dear Parents,

Believe it or not, we're down to the last 10 days of the 1st Quarter! Please take some time this weekend to review HomeLink with your child to see if they have assignments coming up or that need completing. If you have questions about a certain assignment, grade, or class, please contact your teachers. Also, if you are having any issues with accessing HomeLink or classes being incorrect, please contact the main office. Thank you and have a great weekend!

Ben Campopiano
Principal, Pine Hollow Middle School


Walk to School Day

The annual Walk to School Day is next Wednesday, October 2! Please encourage your child to join the thousands of students around the world who will be walking to school on International Walk to School Day! We will have all sorts of activities, rewards, and giveaways before school from 7:15-8:15am, so please have children get to school early!

Please remind your children to always:

  • Use crosswalks and sidewalks
  • Stop, Look, and Listen
  • Make eye contact with drivers before stepping into the street
  • Wear helmets on bikes, skateboards, and scooters
  • Bike on the right side of the road, go the same direction as cars
  • Be visible with lights and reflective clothing

Student Clubs

Please check out our growing list of clubs that we offer at Pine Hollow! Clubs are student run and supported by staff members who serve as advisors. If your child is interested in starting a club, have them complete a club application or come to the main office for more information. We will be having a Club Day soon where student leaders can share information about their club and solicit new members.
