Dining Night Out!

Save the Date! Thursday, October 25th from 4:00pm-8:00pm at Which-Wich

What will you be doing six days before Halloween? Will you be feverishly pulling together Halloween costumes, raiding the store for candy for the trick-or-treaters, hanging last minute decorations, or all of the above?!? Here’s a way to take something off your plate…. by putting something on it (and for a good cause!). Come support Hollymead and leave the cooking up to Which-Wich on Thursday, October 25th! Swing by Which-Wich between 4:00-8:00pm with your Hollymead PTO flier. Which-Wich is a Win-Win… dinner is taken care of, and it supports our Hollymead PTO!

Box Tops

It’s Box Tops Season again…time to officially kick off the Fall collection! Those little box tops really add up to raise funds for Hollymead School! Box Tops will be collected for the Fall drive now through Wednesday October 24th. Any box tops dated November 2018 and beyond are eligible. Please send in box tops with your Hollymead students to be dropped off in the collection tub, which is located on the table next to the office. Thank you for your efforts in helping to support Hollymead Elementary!


Hollymead Bookfair

The Hollymead Book Fair is here! This reading event brings the books kids want to read right into our school. Come visit the Book Fair this week in the Hollymead Auditorium from October 8th-12th. All students will have a chance to preview the fair to fill out a wish list, and then later that week, will have a chance to purchase books. Please pay with cash or a check made payable to Hollymead PTO. Be sure to include 5.3% sales tax in your order.

We need you to make the book fair a success. If you’re able to help make this event a big success, please join us by signing up here:

Bingo Night!

Join us THIS Friday, October 12th for Bingo in the “Enchanted Forest,” which will be located in the Hollymead cafeteria. Pizza and baked goods will be available for purchase, so please pick up a magical treat to enjoy along your way. Bingo Night will be occurring alongside the Scholastic Night at the Book Fair, which will begin at 5:00pm in the auditorium. Bingo and concessions will start at 6:30pm.

Hollymead School Directory

The directory is a valuable resource to encourage Hollymead families to connect with each other and to build our school community even stronger! In the directory, you will find class lists and contact information, as well as useful tips and tools for supporting our school and our PTO.
In order to be included in the directory, be sure to check the box “include in directory” when completing your student verification.
We love and appreciate all types of families at Hollymead, and because of this, we want to ensure your family dynamic is properly represented in this year’s Directory.

We also have a variety of advertising opportunities. Please email Shannon DeSalvo (HollymeadPTOVP@gmail.com) for more information on advertising and directory contact information.
