Hello Hollymead Elementary Families! Phone calls are happening, emails are coming and Facebook groups are forming. The virtual start to our 2020-2021 school year is right around the corner and we are all in this together. Our amazing teachers have been working hard, reaching out, and preparing. And our kids, are so excited to meet their teachers and see their friends’ faces.
This is the first this school year in a series of weekly emails from your PTO. These emails will help keep you informed about upcoming events, club opportunities, and ways to support and thank our wonderful teachers, Hollymead staff and students.
