Trip to Japan, Anyone?


Interested in traveling to Japan with other Pine Hollow students and families? If so, see this flier for details about a unique opportunity for March 2025. As the flier highlights, this trip is not a PHMS/WCPSS-sponsored trip. 

Help is Needed for Concessions - Musical


Looking for a fun opportunity to get involved at PHMS? PTSA is looking for volunteers to assist with selling concessions (before show time and at intermission) during the musical run the last week of April. If you’re interested and able to assist, click here to see available time slots and performance dates.


Please note, if we do not have volunteers to help run concessions on particular dates, concessions will not be offered during those performances. If you have any questions, please contact Katie Feltey (PTSA’s Concessions Co-Chair) at ksmcmahan@gmail.com.

Student Engagement Survey Live Now


In the spring, students in grades 5-13 will be asked to complete the annual WCPSS Student Engagement Survey. Your child will be given an opportunity to complete this survey during the school day over the next few weeks.  The survey includes questions about teacher-student relationships, relevance of school work, and future aspirations and goals.

The results of this survey help schools monitor their School Improvement Plans, and help the district track student perceptions about their educational experiences. You can click here to review the questions included on this survey. If you would prefer that your child NOT participate in this survey, please complete this digital opt-out form by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, April 17, 2024.
