Thank you, Hollymead, for a year we’ll not soon forget. We’ve been so proud of how the Hollymead community has stepped up to make sure our students and staff had all the things they needed to make this challenging year go as smoothly as possible. You’ve turned in your Box Tops, emptied your closets of shoes, Dined Out, kept kids reading, made magic, created an amazing yearbook, showed tons of teacher appreciation, and got competitive with a raffle. All those things allowed the PTO to purchase different kinds of playground equipment, buy outdoor seating pads, help adapt classrooms, and keep our teachers and staff fueled. 

Hollymead is an incredibly special community. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the ways, big and small, that each of you have contributed. A strong PTO and family involvement really does make a huge difference – that’s you! 

Enjoy your summer! Congratulations to our fabulous 5th graders and those who will be moving on. For all you returning to Hollymead in the fall, we look forward to seeing you again soon. Go Hornets!

A big thank you to Ann Lawrence Grasty for organizing a very fun and successful auction. And a big thank you to all of the teachers that participated by volunteering their time and creativity. The auction provided options to bid on a variety of 43 items. In total we had 306 bids, raising $1,848.57 for your Hollymead PTO! 


We’re looking for a few fun people! PTO Board positions will be open for the coming school year as well as event chairs. If you’re looking for a way to meet a great group of people, be more involved in your student’s school activities, and have fun along the way, there’s a spot for you on the PTO. Everything from helping out with an event to Board positions like Treasurer, Vice President, and more will be open for the coming year. Check out the PRO site for job descriptions, or email or with any questions. We’d love to have you! 


The fun, annual tradition of field day is here! On Tuesday and Wednesday, Kona Ice will be at Hollymead. Virtual students can stop by between 11:30 & 11:50 for their shaved ice. Asynchronous activities will be posted daily in Seesaw. If you would like to share some pictures of your family partaking in the challenges, you can post pictures to Ms. Kopley’s Seesaw page. 


As you are prepare for summer camps and summer school, consider Mabel’s Labels. From the school search, look for Hollymead, and 20% of all purchases will then support your Hollymead PTO.
