• Principal's Weekly Message for 7-14-19

    Posted by Andrew Livengood on 7/14/2019 6:00:00 AM

    Hello Pine Hollow Middle School community. This is your principal, Andrew Livengood, with the weekly message for the week of July 14.

    • Band Instrument Rental Night: Tuesday, July 16 at 6PM in the cafeteria for students on Tracks 1, 2 & 3 and again on Thursday, August 8 for Track 4 students.
    • Meet the Teacher Open House:
      • July 17 for Tracks 1&3
      • August 1 for Tracks 2&4
      • Both Open Houses will begin at 6PM.
    • Buses: You can determine your child's bus pickup time and location by accessing their PowerSchool account.  If you do not have an account, please come by PHMS with a photo ID to get access to an account.
      • Please use the “Here Comes the Bus” app to track your student’s bus in the mornings and afternoons.  For information on the app, please visit: https://www.wcpss.net/Page/35380
      • For Joint-Custody parents:  bus transportation is only permitted to the address listed in PowerSchool for your student.  If you wish for your child to be allowed to ride to a different address due to joint-custody, then you will need to fill out the following form:  https://tinyurl.com/y4ktcq2sPlease note that these requests are not processed until after the 20th day of school by Transportation and are never guaranteed.  It is the parent's responsibility to provide transportation to the secondary address until then.  
      • Per Transportation students are only allowed to be transported to the stop associated with the address we have in PowerSchool.  If there is another stop you would like your child to be able to ride to (e.g. babysitter, relative, etc.) a request must be submitted here https://www.wcpss.net/Page/179.   Please note that these requests are not processed until after the 20th day of school by Transportation and are never guaranteed.  It is the parent's responsibility to provide transportation to the secondary address until then.  
      • Due to the volume of requests and questions during this time of year, it is often faster to communicate with our assistant principal for transportation via email.  Please email him at ctunstall@wcpss.net if you have any questions or concerns.  
    • Cell Phones: Please be aware that we are tightening up on students using their phones without permission. Teachers have reviewed this multiple times the first few days to ensure students are aware. Students using a phone without permission are subject to having the phone confiscated and kept in the main office until a parent can pick it up.
    • Checking Students Out of School: We take the safety and security of our students very seriously; therefore, anyone we do not yet know by name and face will be asked to show ID when coming to the office to sign a student out of school. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and we appreciate your patience as we learn our ever-growing Pilot community.
    • Carpool: Please be careful as you enter and exit our campus during morning and afternoon carpool. Cones are placed across the parking lot to help you find your way and learn the route. Having cars wind through the lot minimizes the back-up of traffic onto Bartram Place. Please do not drop your student off until they are in front of the curb by the school so that they do not have to step in front of other cars. Similarly, in the afternoon we will ask your students to wait for you to pull up to the curb in front of the school before entering your vehicle.
    • Student Agendas: All students receive a free copy of the Student Agenda (handbook) the first day of school. Please make sure you review it with your student so that you are also aware of our policies and procedures. An electronic copy of the agenda is also available on our website under the “Students” tab. Students who lose their agenda may purchase another one for $5 in the main office.
    • Fly-By and Schedule Pick-Up for Track 4: July 25 from 4:30-6. This is not a meet the teacher event but an opportunity to walk around and become familiar with the campus. All students will receive a new schedule on the first day of school, so families who are unable to attend this event—don’t worry!! We will take care of your child and get him/her to the correct place when they arrive to school the first day.
    • Free and Reduced-Price Meals: Prior year benefits may be used by students in the new school year for a maximum of 30 operating daysor until an application for the new school year has been processed, whichever comes first. All students who wish to have free or reduced-price meals must re-apply each school year. After the expire date below, any student who has not submitted a new application will have to pay for meals until a new application has been processed. Hard copy applications are available in the cafeteria and may be submitted at any time during the school year. Expire dates for this year are:
      • Track 1: August 19
      • Track 2: September 9
      • Track 3: September 10
      • Track 4: September 9
    • Teacher/Team Communications: In addition to this weekly message which provides broad information regarding school-wide events, all of our teams maintain their own websites with more detailed information that you will find useful in supporting your child here at PHMS. To find this information go to our school website (wcpss.net/pinehollowms) and click on “Academics” then your child’s grade-level and their track. I encourage you to bookmark your child’s team site and visit it frequently so that you have accurate and up-to-date information regarding your child’s classes. And as always, feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher(s) if there are any questions or concerns.
    • From the PTSA:
    • We had a great first week of school and look forward to a terrific second week. We hope you too have a great week and remember, at Pine Hollow Middle School the sky is the limit!

    Hello Pine Hollow Middle School community. This is your principal, Andrew Livengood, with the message for the week of May 12.

    • Spring Athletic Banquet: Tuesday at 6:30PM in the cafeteria. See your child’s coach for more info.
    • 8th grade Dance: Friday, May 31 from 6-9PM in the cafeteria. Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at school the week of May 20 (more info coming soon). Students must have a signed permission slip and no OVERDUE library books or fees in order to purchase a ticket. No tickets will be sold at the door.
    • Attention 8th grade Parents: Eighth grade students are expected to return OVERDUE Pine Hollow library books before purchasing their 8th grade dance ticket. They should have a 'zero balance' on their library account before moving on to high school. Through the month of May eighth grade students will regularly receive overdue notices detailing any overdue book title(s) and the cost for replacement if a book is lost. These overdue materials should be returned or paid for (if lost) as soon as possible. If you have any questions about overdue library materials your student has checked out, please email Kristen Ziller, library media specialist, at “kziller@wcpss.net”.
    • 8th Grade End-Of-Year Celebrations: We are starting a new tradition this year and asking for 6th and 7th grade parents to help us set-up and clean-up for the 8th grade celebrations. All materials (paper products, decorations and food) will be ready for you to set up. Parents may volunteer to help with any 8th grade track regardless of your 6th or 7th grade child’s track. Please click here to volunteer: https://forms.gle/h38qv7FRQSqhofgb9. Thank you in advance for helping so that 8th grade parents can spend time with their children at these celebrations.
