Pine Hollow Parents,

Happy New Year and welcome to the 2nd Semester of the school year! I hope you and your family had a restful and rejuvenating break, and are excited for what's ahead in 2020! For those of you still working on your New Year's Resolutions ... consider supporting our PTSA more this year! Here's some simple and great ways to help out:

The PTSA is made up of fabulous parents like you who dedicate the time they can to support Pine Hollow. These steps above and other small actions taken by our parent community have a massive positive impact on our students, staff, and school!

Thank you to our PTSA board, our dedicated volunteers, and all of the parents who support us throughout the year! We couldn't do it without you! Best,

Ben Campopiano
Pine Hollow Middle School


iReady Diagnostic #2 Starts Monday

The iReady Diagnostic #2 begins on Monday! All students will be taking the iReady in Math and Reading which will provide us diagnostic information about their math and reading levels. Please remind your child to take these tests seriously and to give their best effort for the entire time. Learn more about iReady here.

New Tardy Policy

Starting this semester, students with 10 tardies in a quarter will receive lunch detentions, and then will receive additional consequences for 15 or more tardies. All students will be marked tardy if they are not in their seat by the final bell. You can view your child's attendance and number of tardies in HomeLink.

Report Cards

2nd Quarter report cards will be mailed home next week. You can also view your child's past grades in HomeLink. If you do not have access to HomeLink, please contact our main office for instructions about how to log in.
