Help spread some cheer at Holiday Gift Shop (Dec 8-9) & Holiday Family Fun Nite (Dec. 9)

Ho! Ho! Ho! Holiday Gift Shop is near! This yehgs-logo_320h_aar, it will be a two day event featuring “The Holiday Surprise Store,” which provides students with an opportunity to find just the right gift for their friends and family.  We will also be selling the remainder of our “Holiday Gift Shop” items from last year at 50% off or more.  FREE gift wrapping is included with your purchases!

Budget envelopes will be sent home with each student by Monday, 12/5/16.  If your child is shopping with one of our volunteers, a budget envelope is required. Please indicate on the envelope whom your child will be shopping for and how much should be spent on each gift.  Please enclose a cash or check (made out to Hollywood School PTA) to cover the cost of the gifts.  If you prefer to online pay, please use upon receipt of exact charges after your child shops. Change will be made and returned to you in the budget envelope as needed.

Help Stock Up Our Indoor Recess Activity Bins for the Winter Months

Hollywood Parents –
It has been an unseasonable warm fall and we have been lucky that our kids have had only a handful of indoor recess days so far. We hear that the Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a rough winter this year and so we want to be prepared with lots of activities to help the kids pass the time indoors if that turns out to be accurate. If you happen to be spending some of your extended time off next week cleaning out the cabinets ahead of the gift giving season, please consider passing along any games, puzzles, activity books, etc. you are no longer using to Hollywood for indoor recess. Please make sure games and puzzles have all their pieces! You can drop them off in the office with Nancy or email Heather DiForti – for pickup after the Thanksgiving break.
We thank you in advance!
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving Break.
