Updated 2018-19 School Year Calendar

At the April Board meeting, it was decided to transition next year to a “trimester” reporting system for report cards. The following link is a revised school calendar that will outline for you the dates for the end of each trimester as well as the report card availability date. 2018-2019_school_calendar_1.3.pdf


Our PBIS program is stronger than ever but we need your help!!!

We recently opened a PBIS student store and could use donations of small prizes (see picture) for students to be able to "purchase" with their STARbucks! If you have any small prizes hanging around your home that you would like to donate, we would need the items in quantities of 30 or more so that students canplan out their purchases. You can send in the items to either the Primary or Elementary office. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!!!

All Big Hollow students are STAR students! Big Hollow students will be expected to demonstrate Safety, Take Responsibility, keep a positive Attitude, and always be Respectful. Many students have earned rewards and positive behavior referrals for being positive role models. If you would like to contribute and help to our PBIS program, please contact us. :)
