Dear Parents,

Happy 2019! I hope you had a restful and relaxing break and are as excited as we are about the new year and 2nd semester! The PTSA has several opportunities for parents and families to get involved in this month, and we could really use your support...

  • The PTSA's Holiday Tech Drive is wrapping up, but we're still hoping for more funds to support our classroom technology! Please consider supporting this fundraiser to help us replace Chromebooks, printers, and other classroom technology that is used daily by our students and staff!
  • On January 17, join us at Mountain Mikes in Concord as part of our monthly Dine & Donate fundraiser. 30% percent of your order will be donated to the Pine Hollow PTSA!
  • The monthly PTSA meeting is on Wednesday, January 30 at 6:30pm in the library. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Thank you for your support! Best,

Ben Campopiano

Principal, Pine Hollow Middle School

Holiday Tech Drive Update

Thank you to all of the families who contributed to our PTSA's Holiday Tech Drive! We raised over $1,100 in just a few weeks, so our students and staff are extremely grateful for your support! If you would still like to donate, it's not too late, and we could really use the help.

Zero Period PE Has Begun

Zero Period PE for 7th and 8th graders has started! Zero period PE starts at 7:15am every morning, and allows students to take an additional class in their schedule.
