Looking for Sponsors for the 2014 Hustle 5K

Holcomb Bridge Middle School (HBMS) PTA is hosting its fourth annual Holcomb Bridge Hustle 5K on Saturday, November 15, 2014. This event is the PTA’s primary fundraiser for the year with a goal to raise over $10,000 to support school-wide academic enrichment programs. While the main purpose of the Holcomb Bridge Hustle is to raise funds for HBMS, it also serves as a fun, community event promoting the importance of health and wellness.

Over 500 participants from the Greater Atlanta area including runners, walkers and assisted-athletes of all ages and levels are expected to participate. We are excited to offer again this year the opportunity of a unique race experience for assisted-athletes through our partnership with The Kyle Pease Foundation. The race will debut a new course this year along Scott Road with the start and finish lines at Centennial High School. Post-race festivities will include food, beverages, DJ, corporate sponsor tables, an awards ceremony and more.

The HBMS PTA invites you to join us as a business sponsor and be a part of the Holcomb Bridge Hustle. Please refer to the linked sponsorship document that provides more details about the event, sponsorship levels and benefits. The HBMS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law. We value your commitment to our school and community and greatly appreciate your support. The HBMS PTA strongly believes that by collaborating with locals businesses that this event will continue to be successful for HBMS and the Roswell community.

Caring and Sharing for teachers at HBMS

Hello to All HBMS families!

Did you know that teachers have to spend an average of $400.00 of their personal money for school supplies for our children?

We are kicking off our Caring and Sharing program during Curriculum Night this Thursday August 22 at 6:30.

We will have a box at the front entrance of the school to collect school supplies that our teachers might need throughout the year. These supplies will stay in our school and benefit our children.

Please go to the dollar store and grab a pack of pencils, a stack of paper, or anything you know your child forgets, and let’s stock pile supplies for our teachers!

Thank you so much for making our school a “Caring and Sharing” environment!
