Parent Community Chat – Monday, March 19th, 6:30pm-7:30pm

Did you know that not only does your child participate in weekly music and visual arts programs at Hollymead, but they also have the arts integrated across the curriculum?  Come hear about the variety of ways our staff integrates the arts, as they believe it is key to ensuring that out students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged!

Please join us for ONE hour at our Parent Community Chat this Monday, March 19th 6:30pm-7:30pm in the Hollymead Library.  Raffle and Refreshments will be provided.

Which Wich PTO Fundraiser Monday, March 19th!

Please join us Monday, March 19th, 4-8pm, at Which Wich in Hollymead Town Center to support the Hollymead Elementary PTO! Bring your flier (sent home in folders) and up to 30% of your purchase will be donated to the PTO!  Which Wich DNO Flier

The more people who come to the fundraiser, the higher the percentage donated and the more money that goes to the PTO and ultimately the students. So, share with family and friends in the area – as long as you have a digital or printed copy of the flier, your purchase will be counted and a percentage donated. Questions? Contact

We hope to see you there!! :)

PTO President’s Message


  1. Benefit your child: Research shows that children perform better when parents are involved both at home and school.
  2. Get connected: There is no better way than to know what is happening at school.
  3. Tap into a network: PTO connects you with other parents and teachers through meetings, events and communications, helping to build a sense of community.

We are seeking Co-Vice Presidents, a Treasurer, and a Co-Volunteer Chair.

If you are interested or know someone who would be great, please come to the Parent Community Chat on Monday.  Talk with Shannon or London.  Can’t come on Monday but want to know more, please contact us at or

If you have information to be included in our weekly Hornet Happenings, please remember to email us at by the Monday before our Wednesday distribution.
