WINTER CHEER TALENT SHOW!
We all need smiles on our faces as we are headed into a long winter in this pandemic! Our winter holidays may look a little different during this global pandemic – so let’s uplift each other by sharing our children’s talent with classmates, teachers and our Hollymead Community.
Please submit a short video of your young talent (2 min max) by Friday, January, 15, 2021
The sky’s the limit for your contribution: submit a/your poem, perform a song, be a dancer, let us marvel at your magic, be a comedian or artist, even tricks with your pets are allowed! 🙂
You will have until Friday, January 15, 2021 to submit your videos. Depending on how many we receive, we will either have one long Virtual Talent Show or several shorter videos grouped by grade. The videos will only be accessible via a link and will not be published on any social media.
Our hope with this project is to let your talent shine and put smiles on every face watching! 🙂

We look forward to seeing all of your amazing videos and talent!

LOOKING FOR YEARBOOK PHOTO SUBMISSIONS
As we look back at our last 9 weeks of virtual learning we have all been gifted a peek into the daily lives of our students, for better or worse. These moments are part of our 2020-21 Hollymead year, and we want you to share them with each other. Please consider submitting photos of your kids for this year’s yearbook. This will be a memento of one of our children’s shared moments in time. They may not be physically together, but we are all in this experience together.

BOX TOPS COLLECTION
Box Tops for Education collection time is upon us! We have a great opportunity to raise some money through those little clippings. Many I suspect are already using the App to scan receipts as I see that we already have some money on there and it keeps rising, so thanks for your efforts! If you haven’t yet, download the app and/or more general info.
Despite the digital option, there are still some physical, clipped box tops out there, of course. We have permission from Principal Dommer to drop off these box tops at Hollymead on any supply/library/etc. pick-up days so when you come through, bring your box tops for the bin through the end of October. For this collection, any with a date of November 2020 and beyond are eligible. Please help out and have your box tops in an envelope or ziploc bag for ease of exchange. Sorting for eligible dates will also be especially appreciated this year.
This is a great way to raise some funds and help support our Hollymead School; thanks for your efforts!
