Box Tops for Education Made Easier
No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school’s Box Tops earnings online.
Twice a year, your school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs!
Middle School Basketball Try-outs
Tryouts for basketball this year will take place on the following dates:
7th Boys Basketball
Tuesday, October 8, 2:30-4pm (MS gym)
Friday, October 11, 2:30-4pm (MS gym)
8th Boys Basketball
Wednesday, October 9, 2:30-4pm (MS gym)
Friday, October 11, 2:30-4pm (US gym)
Girls Basketball (7th and 8th grade)
Monday, October 21, 2:30-3:30pm (MS Gym)
Wednesday, October 23, 2:30-3:30pm (MS Gym)
Players must attend both tryout dates, unless receiving prior approval.
We ask that parents do not attend tryouts, as we are trying to create an environment that is equal for everyone involved in the process. By not allowing outside spectators, the students are able to compete without any added pressure of parents watching and coaches are able to evaluate without any outside biases.
7th Girls – Kelly Jeffries
8th Girls – Brandon Johnson
7th Boys – Brock Morton
8th Boys – Sparky Grober
Tryouts will be taking place during the athletic period and all fall coaches are aware that any athlete trying out for basketball will be missing sports that day.
Basketball practices will begin on Monday, October 28 and the first game is Monday, November 11.
The 7th and 8th grade will have one competitive basketball team per grade, per gender. There will be 12 players selected per team; ten players will suit up each game and an additional two players will have the option of being a practice player for the year. The purpose of the practice player role is to allow a player to continue to develop one’s basketball skill and participate in each practice. All players who do not make the team(s) will have their choice of joining Wrestling, APT (athletic performance training), Dance, or Physical Education.
The Holland Hall basketball teams participate in the Pinnacle Conference and adhere to all OSSAA guidelines.
Book Fair October Book Drive
Tuesday, October 1 marks the start of the October Book Drive!

Parent volunteers can contribute to their student’s points with double points during October for hours worked in the Book Room.
