Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary School
Principal's Message

Welcome to Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary, an award winning school!  As half of the school year comes to a close and I reflect back on the first semester, it is evident that all of our successes have been made possible by the strong partnership that we have developed with our parents and community.  What a wonderful and exciting year we have had!  I look forward to working with you all as we continue to seek excellence!  I would like to thank each of you for coming out and supporting our first “Wild About Reading” night at Hollywild Zoo. Thanks to you, it was a huge success.  We are looking forward to our upcoming "Reading at the Rink" night at Roebuck Skate Center. Make sure to bring your favorite book! Also, we are so excited about our new Lap Babies program, which will take place on the fourth Friday of every month. All children, ages birth through four years old, are welcome! Make sure to be on the lookout for the monthly flyer about this special program. I warmly welcome you to visit our school and discover firsthand what makes Holly Springs-Motlow so special.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
