Pine Hollow Middle School

Pine Hollow News: 5/14/21

Dear Parents,

The CAASPP testing begins this Monday, May 17th.

Students should refer to this bell schedule for next week, and log in to their 2nd Period / Homestead Class on Monday morning at 8:30am.

Students need the following to take the CAASPP from home:

  • SSID Number (State Student ID Number)

  • Device that has the CAASPP Secure Browser

  • Session ID: Teachers will provide this to students

  • Pencil and paper for scratch notes

Thank you for your support and please remember that although we want to encourage our students to do their very best on the CAASPP, we certainly don't want them getting frustrated or upset if they run into technical difficulties. Please let them know that any issues that occur will not negatively impact their grades, placement, or standing. Thank you!

8th Grade Parent Meeting Recap

Earlier this week, I met with 8th Grade families to discuss awards, promotion, materials drop-off process, and more. Our Zoom video recording did not work, but here is the Slide Deck with all the pertinent info.

FYI ... 8th Grade Promotion details and sign-ups will be shared next week. We will give all families advanced notice to when we will release the Sign-Up Genius to select your group for Promotion.

Materials Returns for All Students

Please take a look at this document to get all the details about how we will be collecting textbooks and Chromebooks in the next few weeks.
