Hollymead Fun Fair: March 23rd!SAVE THE DATE for this great event! On March 23rd, the PTO will be hosting the Hollymead Fun Fair. Stay tuned for more details about the event and additional ways you can volunteer to help make this another successful event.


Box Tops Collection Ends in 2 Days!The Box Tops Spring 2019 collection drive is still on! Let’s use these box tops to help raise funds for Hollymead Elementary School. Please send your box tops in with your child to be dropped off in the Box Tops tub (next to the front office) by THIS TUESDAY, Tuesday, February 26th.

March Dining Night OutMarch Madness is quickly approaching! For some of you, this means the excitement of college basketball! However, for many of you it might mean the madness of “WHAT’S FOR DINNER TONIGHT?!”. Well, don’t make yourself crazy, take the night off from cooking and head to Martin’s Grill on Wednesday, March 13th from 5:00pm-9:00pm. Martin’s Grill is located at 3449 Seminole Trail, just minutes from Hollymead! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hollymead PTO. Fliers won’t be necessary–just mention you are there to support Hollymead’s Dining Night Out. Thanks in advance for your support!
