PINE HOLLOW MIDDLE SCHOOL

Friday, May 10, 2019

Pine Hollow Parents,

Thank you for joining us on Wednesday evening for our annual Open House! It was such a pleasure to see the huge turnout from our community and watch our kids show off their work. Our staff is so proud of the progress your kids have made and we greatly appreciate the hard work you are doing at home to support them. Thank you to our parent volunteers who truly made this a special evening for our entire community!


Also, please know that your participation and purchases at the Book Fair, raffle, and food trucks helped our PTSA raise much needed funds for our general fund. Our final PTSA meeting of the year on May 29th at 6:30pm - we are currently planning for next school year and need your continued support. Thanks again and Go Mustangs!
