AND WE ARE BACK

Welcome to the other side of week one, and what a week it was. Technology was not perfect, but our teachers have been amazing, and our children so resilient. They all live up to this school years guiding principle, be flexible.

It is so nice getting to see so many old friends and meeting new ones. Our kids are getting to explore art and music, pretending to be Spiderman in gym class, listen to stories, refreshing those math muscles, and with a view into their homes they are getting to share who they are with their teachers and friends in a whole new way. Weaved through out the Seesaw assignments these little ones are showing off their big personalities in uniquely creative ways.

Looking back another week. Thank you to all of our wonderful Hollymead families that contributed to our Back to School bags. Thanks to your generosity snacks and gift cards were distributed to the whole staff. Meanwhile, the teachers were busy packing up and distributing bags of goodies for all of our kids. Driving through the pick up line, it was so nice seeing so many of the teachers again. And continuing to build on the excitement for first week of classes the spectacular Hollymead teachers and staff decorated their vehicles and drove by in a parade of green and yellow. Thank you to everyone that helped make it such a fun way to start the new school year.

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!

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Dear Hollymead Community,
This is our last week of the 2018-19 school year. Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday we were attending Back To School Night together.

It has been a successful year for the PTO with lots of fun events, students supported and staff appreciated. We purchased over $5000 in books, supplemented field trips, purchased classroom items for special projects and much, much more.

We’d like to say an extra thank you to a few of our retiring board members. Kelly Lynn, Sam Haas, Jill Dowling, Rosemary Moriarty and Crystal Pariseau have each worked behind the scenes to keep your PTO running smoothly. Thank you for your time and dedication to our community.

We’d also like to say thank you to our new Principal, Craig Dommer, and Vice Principal, Laura Morris. Your fresh ideas and perspectives were a welcome change. It was a year of getting to know each other and we appreciate your thorough approach to seeing how the school works, making thoughtful suggestions and taking the time to talk with the PTO board, parents and staff about ways to improve our efforts and our school.

We cannot end the year without welcoming our newly elected board members. Shannon and I will be stepping down but leave you in the very capable hands of your new Co- Presidents, Shannon DeSalvo and Sonja Carrick. We enjoyed working with them this year as Co-Vice Presidents and are excited about the ideas they have for next year. Kate DeLuca will be stepping in as Co-Volunteer Chair. We still have a few positions available so please reach out if interested. We need your help to ensure the success of our PTO.

And finally, everyone in our community is a member of the PTO. We want to thank each of you for contributing to a successful year.

Enjoy your summer!

London and Shannon
