Weekly Message for 5-2-21

Posted by Andrew Livengood on 5/2/2021

Hello Pine Hollow Middle School community. This is your principal, Andrew Livengood, with the weekly message for May 2.

  • This Week: Wednesday is an asynchronous day for all students.
  • Virtual Academy for 2021-22: The registration window to apply for your child to be in VA next year closes today at 5pm. For more information and/or to enroll visit: https://www.wcpss.net/Page/48305
  • New Teacher Recognition Program: Is there a teacher or staff member you would like to celebrate for doing a terrific job? Has someone been consistently outstanding or maybe gone above-and-beyond recently for your student/family? If so, I encourage you to nominate that person for our new Top Gun Staff Member of the Month award. There aren’t any firm rules or requirements to nominate someone for recognition. The point of this is to recognize a teacher or two each month who was nominated by a student or parent. The teacher(s) would be recognized in front of their peers at the next staff meeting. In order to nominate someone, just fill out this form and make sure to clearly explain why you think they are deserving of this recognition.
  • Athletics: Winter Workouts begin tomorrow. Parents of registered students received an email last week. Please make sure your student has the pre questionnaire paperwork with them tomorrow.
  • Yearbooks:
    • Do you have a picture of your child’s virtual workspace or from the first day of school? We have come up with over 20 ideas for photos that you can submit from home to be included in the yearbook such as crazy quarantine hair, quarantine cuisine, pets taking over your workspace, or even your child’s personal bitmoji! The photos you submit would be in addition to the portrait picture your child will have taken at school. Please submit photos using this form
    • Go to yearbookordercenter.com to reserve your yearbook for only $40. Personalized name stamps can be added to your Yearbook for only $5. Also, 8th grades ads available starting at $25!
