Thank you to the Holly Springs High School Hawks football players for visiting some HGES classrooms today! The boys were able to read to classes, play review games, answer some questions about themselves πŸ˜ƒ, and end their visit with a big kickball game with the 5th graders!! Those who are former HGES students also loved seeing the teachers they had! They all left asking when they can do it again! πŸ’œ

And a special thank you to Mrs. Horvat for coordinating this!

Their next home game is next Friday, 9/15, vs Middle Creek. The boys would love to see some of their new friends from HGES!

Fifth Grade Families,

Greetings! We hope this message finds you well and that your students are settling in smoothly to the new school year. We're excited to introduce an enriching opportunity that will allow your child to dive into the realm of creativity and communication – the Journalism Club at Holly Grove Elementary!

The Journalism Club is an avenue for students to unleash their imaginations, develop their writing prowess, and share captivating stories with our school community through The Prickles Post. Through writing, reporting, and storytelling, participants will cultivate valuable skills while having a great time in the process. The journalism club will meet one Thursday morning a month at 8am. You can find the meeting dates located on the HGES Calendar.

Inaugural Meeting Details:
Date: Thursday, October 12th
Time: 8am until school begins
Location: Ms. Woodruff's room

We understand that mornings can be busy, but we believe that the early start will infuse your child's day with inspiration and enthusiasm. What better way to begin their day than by uncovering stories waiting to be told?

If your student is interested in joining, please have them complete the following Google Form: https://forms.gle/jXnQZU3hkATVpm7P9

Whether your child aspires to be a journalist or simply wants to explore a new adventure, the Journalism Club warmly welcomes all eager, 5th grade minds. If you have any questions or require assistance in facilitating your child's involvement, please don't hesitate to reach out to either Ms. Woodruff ([email protected]) or Mrs. Russell ([email protected]).

We eagerly anticipate embarking on this journalistic journey with your child, watching them thrive as they develop essential skills and create lasting memories. Thank you for your continuous support in making Holly Grove Elementary an epicenter of learning, growth, and creativity.
