Holly Grove is in need of volunteer proctors to cover End-of-Grade testing for dates in May & June. Proctoring is very easy and volunteer proctors help our school by allowing other staff to fulfill their normal duties so children do not have as many interruptions/changes in instruction due to upper grades testing. If interested, please contact Mike Przybowski, the school counselor and test coordinator at 919-577-1705 or firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can help. End-of-Grade testing dates are as follows:
Tracks 2, 3 & 4 - June 11th, 12th, & 13th.
Teacher Assistant of the Year
During a banquet Friday, April 19, 2013, Mrs. Eichvalds was named the Wake County Teacher Assistant of the Year! We are so proud of her accomplishment. She is such a deserving teacher assistant to receive this honor. When we think of her, several adjectives come to mind: caring, flexible, helpful, resourceful, team player, friendly, helper, and committed to name just a few.
Wake County is offering free classes to parents about a variety of different topics, such as the common core curriculum and transitioning students from elementary to middle school. Please browse the files below for more information about these classes.
