“They didn’t do math this way when I was a kid!’’

“When I was in school, we just read – 
we didn’t have to worry about all this other stuff.’’

Do you find yourself saying

Are you sometimes afraid to open that backpack to see what kind of “homework monster’’ lives in there?

From the Principal


May 29, 2015

Dear Holman Families:

I hope that everyone was able to enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend with friends and family.  The weather, for the most part, was spectacular.  As we begin the month of June and approach the final stretch of the school year, I encourage you to continue to read with your child each evening, now and throughout the summer. Time spent reading with young learners has amazing effects on students’ educational success.

Bobcat Benevolence

 Mrs. Macaluso and Mrs. Shilan held a book drive with the Holman community. They collected gently used or new books and worked with students to level and/or categorize the books in preparation for a book sale.  They decided that all money collected would be donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.  I am very proud to say that Mrs. Macaluso, Mrs. Shilan and their students have raised over $1,500 to date!  Holman's main lobby bulletin board has been decorated with Make a Wish stars showcasing the names of all the students and staff that have made a difference by either purchasing a book or making a donation. These fourth grade students learned so many valuable lessons from this project, other grade level students were able to purchase some great book for a good cause, and money was raised for childhood cancer research.  Congratulations, to our Holman School community for making a difference!
