Pine Hollow News: December 8, 2020

Dear Parents,

You should have received an email invite or two in the last couple weeks to register for ParentSquare, the district's new communication tool. Please create an account when you can, and confirm that you are set up to receive messages how you prefer. I highly recommend that you set your ParentSquare account to receive instant text message alerts, as well as email alerts. This will enable you to stay easily informed of everything that's going on at Pine Hollow.


One of my goals as the Pine Hollow Principal is to communicate early and often, so I'm excited that we have a better tool now to communicate with. Keep an eye out for another invite coming soon, and please let me know if you have any questions about ParentSquare. Thank you,


Ben Campopiano
Principal
Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow Budget Information

Ever wonder how much money Pine Hollow has in our discretionary budget? Or, how we spend this money to support students? Check out the below documents to learn more about the Pine Hollow budget... and join Mr. Campo at his principal chats next week to get more budget details.

PBIS

Students are busy earning PRIDE Points for showing Positive, Respectful, Inclusive, Determined and Engaged behavior. And they are busy purchasing items at our PBIS store with those points! The final day to order items or purchase tickets for the December PBIS raffle is this Sunday, 12/13. Pick up of items is scheduled for the 18th from 2:00-5:00pm. (More details to come on this next week.)


Because our PBIS Store is so popular, we need more items to include. We would love donations of food, candy, sports equipment, make-up, school supplies, toys, treats, and any other goodies that kids like. It will help us make the store better and kids more excited to earn and spend their PRIDE Points! Donations can be brought to the main office during business hours... Thank you!
