From the Principal

Summer 2015

Dear Holman Families:

I want to thank all of the Holman community for another wonderful school year.  It has been a pleasure working with the staff, students, and parents throughout the year.  I would also like to thank H.O.P.E for all of their support and contributions to our school.  I hope that even more parents become active members in this organization next year.  As we begin the summer months ahead, I encourage you to continue to read with your child each evening.  Time spent reading with young learners has amazing effects on students’ educational success.  Please continue to encourage your child to read and take part in the Every Hero Has a Story! project listed below.  I also encourage you to practice Math Fast Facts with your child and/or take advantage of the enVision Math web site.  This site will provide you and your child with activities and games to practice and strengthen math skills.  These resources may be found at Please note that your child’s i.d. number is their login and the password to be used is “jackson” (all lower case).  Have a safe and relaxing summer!

Stop the Summer Slide.....READ!

During the last week of school, students in grades 2, 3, and 4 received a “Summer Reading Book” from the Jackson School District.  The books were accompanied with a letter to parents explaining the expectations of students during the summer.  Students must read their book, complete a project about their book (project ideas are printed on the back of the letter), and then bring their book and project to their new teacher in September.   

Additionally, we had a visit from several librarians from the Jackson Branch of the Ocean County Library during the last week of school.  The Jackson Library has a full calendar of summer activities for children—and they are all free!  Plus, the Ocean County Library has a Summer Reading Program for children –the theme is Every Hero Has a Story!  For every five (5) books that your child reads, the Jackson Library will enter your child into a raffle to win prize baskets and a grand prize at the end of the summer. 

In conjunction with the Ocean County Library, Holman School is also trying to promote reading from our students this summer.  If your child is in Grades K-4, he or she will receive a special yellow reading log at school—children should use this reading log to record the books that they read.  When your child reads five (5) books this summer, bring the yellow reading log to the Jackson Public Library.  Besides receiving treats from the Jackson Library, your child will also receive a special Every Hero Has a Story! reading certificate.  If you child brings that reading certificate to school in September, he or she will be entered into a special raffle to win one of three (3) prize baskets (sponsored by HOPE)  here at Holman in September.  Keep on reading, learning and growing this summer!
