Hollymead Elementary School is so fortunate to have many, many parent and community volunteers.  Volunteers help in classrooms during academic times, plan extra curricula activities in classrooms, help with team building day and field day, shelve books in the library, assist Mrs. Foster’s art classes, supervise on field trips and so much more.

VIcki. Hoovis is in her fifth year volunteering at Hollymead and is willing to help wherever she is needed.  She has already logged 60 hours this year.  Ms. Hoovis also works for Walmart/Sam’s Club and her employer supports her volunteerism in school.  In fact they support and encourage their employees to volunteer to the extent that they put money behind their support.  For every 25 hours Ms. Hoovis volunteers in our school, Walmart/Sam’s Club donates $250.00 to Hollymead.  We not only get Ms. Hoovis helping out in all kinds of ways, we get money! The money that we receive benefits students at Hollymead in many ways. Thank you Ms. Hoovis and WalMart/Sam’s Club!

Welcome to Hollymead


Hello, my name is Kim Blevins. I’m so excited to be joining the Hollymead community.

This is my 23rd year of teaching. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with students in first through eighth grade. My certification is pre-school through grade six, and I have a Master’s in Educational Leadership. I have two wonderful children, both attending UVA. My oldest will graduate this spring with a Ph.D. in microbiology, and my youngest is a freshman in the engineering program. I also have an eight month old black lab that I absolutely adore. Outside of school, I enjoy family activities, exercising, photography, and technology. I look forward to working with the teachers, students, and parents of Hollymead. Together, we make a difference.
