Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary School
Principal's Message

Welcome to Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary, an award winning school!  As November approaches and I reflect back on the start of the year, 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 start 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 “Wild About Reading” Night at Hollywild Zoo.  Thanks to you, it was a huge success.  We look forward to our upcoming Thanksgiving Lunch, Turkey Trot, and our Christmas Around the World breakfast celebration.  There will be more information about these events in the coming weeks.  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.
