Help keep a homeroom informed on upcoming PTSA events & anything the teacher needs to have communicated/assistance with and provide the PTSA with feedback from parents and students on how we're doing.

Unity Day - Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Wear ORANGE !
What are your true colors when it comes to bullying?
If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities, make your color ORANGE on Unity Day. That’s the day everyone can come together—in schools, communities, and online — and send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are united against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
Wear ORANGE. It can be an orange T-shirt, tie, hat, wristband, socks, or even shoelaces. Show your support beyond the school—wear ORANGE in the workplace, home and community.Make it ORANGE and make it end!

Athletic Gap is a way for your kids to stay at school (supervised) until game time on days when Pollard has home games. (READ: one less trip for you to make shuttling your kid!) The cost for Athletic GAP is $2, and does not include the admission price to the game. Softball and soccer games are free admission. Basketball games cost $3. The Boosters Club sells concessions at games, so your child may want to bring extra money for that as well.
Every year, Pollard Band Director, Michele Reams, encourages her band students to go to the esteemed UNCG Summer Music Camp. This year, a record number of 35 Pollard band students attended the camp.
