Food Drive
The 6th Annual Food Drive to benefit FISH Hospitality Pantries is underway and runs through Nov. 16th.  Students who bring 10 additional cans this week will get FREE admission to the basketball game on November 19th against South Doyle Middle School.  At the end of the drive, the student from each grade who has brought in the most cans will receive a $20 gift card from the PTSA. Parents you can drop off cans in the mornings when you drop off your student and we will deliver them inside for you.

The staff member who brings in the most cans from now until Nov. 16th will receive the Gift Bag which includes a week long jeans pass and more.

Picture Retakes

If your student missed portrait day, the make-up date is Monday, November 12. This is the portrait for the yearbook so you don't want to miss out! If you purchased photos and you are not happy with them, please return the pictures and have your retakes made on Nov. 12.

Veteran’s Day Programs

We will have Veteran’s Day programs from the Music Department on Monday, Nov. 12. Performances are at 9:00, 10:15 and 1:15.  Parents and community members are invited to attend any performance.  All chorus students will be performing as well as 7th and 8th grade bands. All performers must wear their concert polos, khaki dress pants and dress shoes to perform that day at school. This is a performance grade. Please contact your child's director if you have any questions.

Parent Conferences

We will have parent conferences on November 12 from 4-6. Grade levels will be issuing invitations for parents to attend.  If you wish to have a conference, please contact the school as those time slots fill up first with invited meetings.

PTSA Meeting

There will be a PTSA meeting on Tuesday, November 13th.  Our PTSA continues to grow and your support is appreciated. Our school volunteers are doing great work. Come join in on the fun!!

Box Tops for BETAs

Please remember to watch for BOX TOPS on items that you are purchasing or using. By turning in the BOX TOPS here at Holston, the BETA Club receives 10 cents for each BOX TOP.

You may place the BOX TOPS in the collection box in the school office or give them to any BETA member or your homeroom teacher. The BETA Club really appreciates your help!
