Posted by Andrew Livengood on 11/10/2019 6:00:00 AM

Hello Pine Hollow Middle School community. This is your principal, Andrew Livengood, with the weekly message for November 10.


  • Veterans Day Holiday: School will be closed for students & staff tomorrow.
  • School Dance: Our first dance of the year is this Friday right after school until 5PM. Students must have a signed permission form in order to attend. The cost is $5. Permission forms are available in the main office, in the weekly email, and on the website.
  • Saturday School: The first of our two make-up days from Hurricane Dorian is this Saturday for students on Tracks 1, 3 & 4. School will last from 8:15 until 11:45. Breakfast will be served but no lunch will be served on Saturdays. The other make-up day is December 7.
  • 7th Grade Parents: 7th grade is in need of volunteers for the upcoming Math Reality Series. This is an interactive style simulation where students are given a career, income, and scenarios where they create a budget, make life decisions (housing, car, savings), figure out taxes, etc.  The volunteers would be in charge of different stations (mall, bank, car dealership, child care, transportation). Volunteers will need to arrive by 8:00 am so that representatives from Coastal Federal Credit Union can explain the task. It is very simple and sooo much fun!!! It will end at 10:30.  If you can help, please click on the link below to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/805084FA4AF2EAAF58-math
  • Food Drive: Last year, PHMS raised the equivalentof 3,225 meals in the Students Against Hunger Food Drive Competition, and we're looking to do even better this year. If you're unable to participate in the Fun Run, but would like to support the PHMS Food Drive for the NC Food Bank please consider donating online at:  http://www.foodbankcenc.org/goto/PHMS19  Students can also bring canned food items in to their homeroom teacher.
