New PTSA Announcements/Dates

The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school! Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. Download the app now. If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Thanks for helping our school get what it needs!

Please turn in all clipped BOX TOPS by Friday Oct, 25th to help earn money for PINE Hollow. Continue to use the mobile app to scan receipts for instant box top rewards!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 10:00am!

We're in the process of planning the first-ever Pine Hollow Middle School Food Drive Fun Run! This year's race will be a 3k, and you can walk or run it! We'll have a map of the route soon for all participants. Cost is $15 and ALL proceeds go to the NC Food Bank.

This year's theme is the crazy costume run! Please join us in wearing fun costumes while running the course. However, we do ask that there are NO masks for everyone's safety!

All participants who register by October 1 will receive a race t-shirt. After October 1, the cost stays the same, but no t-shirt will be provided. We will not be taking on-site registration, so please register now.
