Thank you to all who attended our April PTO meeting. Your involvement and input is important to making our school and the PTO activities a success. Here is a link to the minutes if you would like to know more and were unable to attend. 4.15.19 Board Meeting Minutes. We look forward to seeing you at our May meeting!



Please help us celebrate the wonderful staff of Hollymead Elementary School throughout the week of May 6-10th. We need YOUR help to make this event a success. We are looking for cooks, bakers, supplies, and volunteers.

Our schedule this year is as follows:

Monday: Cookout in the atrium

Tuesday: Breakfast/Smoothie cart

Wednesday: International Food day

Thursday: Soup and Salads

Friday: Dessert day

We would love your support in providing these meals for our staff who care for our children daily. Please consider signing up to bring some of the items listed, cooking a favorite dish, baking a dessert or volunteering your time. You can sign up to help using this link:  Meal Donation Sign-up

A note for International Food Day: We would love to introduce our staff’s palette to something ethnic. If you have a favorite dish that you would like to share, Wednesday is the day. When you sign up, please provide the name of the dish that you will provide.

We would also love to provide a variety of gift cards for each of our staff members (teachers, administration, cafeteria, bus drivers, custodians, and all of those who take care of our children and school). If you can, stop by one of your favorite restaurants, shops, gas stations, dessert shops, or store to pick up one or a few….$5 and $10 cards will be greatly appreciated. Gift cards can be dropped off at the school office. Gift Cards Sign-up
