Principal's Message September 1, 2019

September 1, 2019


Greetings Holly Ridge Families,


I hope the start of the school year has been just as enjoyable for you and your child/children as it has been for the staff at Holly Ridge.  It has been an absolutely phenominal week at the Ridge and we are excited about this school year.  I want to take an opportunity to share a few things.  As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns do not hesitate to reach out to the school.  We appreciate your continued support as we strive to make Holly Ridge Middle School the flagship school of Wake County. 


Transportation Requests: Parents must have requested a stop through WCPSS if their child will be riding the bus. If you have not requested for your child to be a bus rider, please visit this link to register.


Bus Evacuation Drill: All bus-riding students will take part in a bus evacuation drill during their arrival to school on the morning of Thursday, September 5th. Please do not drop your student off in the bus loop on this day to minimize the flow of traffic.  All carpool should use the main entrance. Be prepared for an increase in traffic. 


Athletic Passes:

Save some money and buy your child a sports pass! You can purchase individual or family passes, click here for more info!

Fall Fundraiser:

Get ready for FALL and order your mums and pansies! Mums are a great gift for friends, family, and clients, as well as the best way to make your house feel ready for fall. Further information about ordering Mums can be found here.

Open House:  Our Open House is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, from 6:00-7:30 pm.  This event is structured to allow parents/guardians the opportunity to follow their students’ schedule in a modified format.  From 5:30-6:00 pm, parents/guardians may visit PTA tables to learn about membership, volunteer opportunities, and fundraiser information.  Spirit wear and sports passes will be available for purchase from our concession stand. Computers in our media center will be available for parents/guardians to sign up as volunteers for our school.   We look forward to seeing you!
