    Dear Hollywood Hills Elementary Families:

    I hope you and your family had a relaxing summer filled with exciting memories.  As a school community we are gearing up for the 2019-2020 school year and are eager to welcome you and your family back to our HHE school community. We are a school that is centered around the individual child.  A school that takes the time to get to know each of our students and ensures that each child is being challenged and their individual needs are being met.  We are a school with the most dedicated and talented educators who truly care about our students.  Please join us this school year as we ensure the very best school experience for your child. 

    I want to thank and commend our summer office staff, custodial staff, and teachers for their hard work and dedication over the summer months. They have been working diligently to ensure that our school is ready for opening day.  I would like to welcome some new faculty and staff to our school community.  Join me in welcoming Sany DeMouy- Kindergarten, Maureen Thomas- 4thGrade, and Tammie Williams- 5thGrade. We are incredibly lucky to welcome such a talented group of educators to our school family.

    Be sure to look for the welcome back packet that will be sent home with your child on the first day of school. Please consider joining our PTA. Without them, our great community events would not be possible.

    Communication is the key to a successful school year. Please contact your child’s teacher if you ever have any questions or concerns. If you need to report an absence, please call 754-323-6202 and leave a detailed message that includes your name, your child’s name, the teacher’s name, the date and the reason for the absence. You can also email your child’s teacher, write a note in his/her agenda/folder, or stop by the front office to make us aware.

    Be sure check our school web-site a regular basis for updates, events, and school forms/policies.  Like in previous years, I typically send home a weekly principal’s telephone/email update with school announcements and happenings.  Be sure to also like us on Facebook at “Hollywood Hills Elementary,” “Hollywood Hills Elementary Aftercare” and follow me personally on Twitter at Principal Fossas. We hope to see you at this year’s Open House on September 4, 2019 at 6:15 PM. If you have any questions feel free to call the office at 754-323-6200. I look forward to another great school year and working with you and your child!
