LAST DAY TO CONTRIBUTE TO TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK IS THIS MONDAY
Hello Hollymead Elementary Families! I hope you are all safe and healthy and enjoying the extra family time together. As we are faced with the new challenge of trying to educate our children at home, I’m sure that we are all feeling a greater sense of appreciation for the teachers and staff who teach and care for our children. Our teachers and administrators are working hard and making adjustments to make online schooling work for us. In light of that, the PTO is still planning to celebrate Teacher and Staff appreciation. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to do our traditional ‘feed the teachers/staff’ week. We have decided to prepare a special gift for everyone. Like we have done in the past, we would like to include a gift card in the amount of $20 to each teacher, administrator, bus driver and staff member of Hollymead Elementary School. We need your help to make this happen. You can help by purchasing one or more gift cards in the following denominations: $5, $10 and $20. Please sign-up to contribute, thank you.
Please share a message of appreciation or support for our teachers!
