Holman Highlights

DECEMBER 4, 2014

We would like to thank the Jackson ROTARY Club for their continued support of literacy throughout our schools.  This year, the Rotary will continue to provide each third grade student in our schools with their own dictionary.  Also, this year, the Rotary will sponsor our Elementary Spelling Bee and also acknowledge the Young Authors in our building.  Thank you, Jackson Rotary, for your continued support in all areas of reading and writing!

Congratulations to the students that earned Snack with the Principal for November!
These students have shown FAIRNESS!

From the Principal


November 21, 2014 

Dear Holman Families:

During the past few mornings there has been rain and even frost.  Students should come to Holman School wearing clothing that keeps them warm during the school day.  As the temperatures get lower, please make sure that your child is also wearing the appropriate outerwear, such as a jacket, gloves, hat, etc.  Weather permitting; teachers try to take students outside for recess on a daily basis.


Thank you to all of the families who were able to attend our classroom visitations during American Education Week.  It was wonderful to see the visitors to our building and to meet with some of you at our Coffee with the Principal which was sponsored each day by JEA Pride.


As the conference days have come to a close, I hope that you have had the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher regarding their progress so far this school year.  Conferences are an important component to ensuring that the school and the home work together to maximize your child’s full potential.  Although there are no other official conference days during the school year, I encourage you to stay in close communication with your child’s teacher and, most importantly, to stay involved in their education.  Whether through a phone call, an e-mail, or a note in the planner, the Holman staff is ready to help.
