From the Principal

October 24, 2014

Dear Holman Families:

Our Fall Harvest Festival is right around the corner.  The celebration begins here at Holman School on Wednesday evening, October 29, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:00pm.  Our H.O.P.E. sponsored event will provide Fall family fun for the whole family!  Please be sure to visit the website for times and details.   I can't wait to see everyone there.

Please be sure to support H.O.P.E. as their support for all of our learners is evidenced and demonstrated in all that they do for our school and school community.  Visit their link on our school web page.  You can support H.O.P.E. in many ways.   We look forward to 100% membership!   Please mark your calendars for our next HOPE meeting which will be held at 7:00PM in the IMC on Wednesday, November 12th, 2014.  We look forward to seeing you there!

During the week of October 27 - 31, Holman School will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week, a week dedicated to remind us to say ‘no’ to drugs.

Monday, October 27th—Use Your Head, Don’t Do Drugs—Crazy Hair Day

Tuesday, October 28th—Sock it to Drugs—Crazy Socks Day

Wednesday, October 29th—Team Up Against Drugs—Team Jersey Day

Thursday, October 30th— I’m a jean-ious because I’m Drug Free—Wear jeans and red as a vow to stay drug free

Friday, October 31st (Halloween)— Read and sign pledge to say ‘no’ to drugs

In keeping with the spirit of fun, we would like to allow the children to dress in costume for the day on Friday, October 31, 2013, if they wish.  Please keep in mind that costumes should be comfortable and allow for children to move freely and should not depict any sort of violence.  Remember that your child will need to sit, write, walk, and eat lunch and/or snack as well as do other school-related activities.  If your child chooses to wear a costume, it should lend itself to these activities. 

Of course, safety is the utmost concern.    In order to provide for a safe, fun experience for all, please be sure to adhere to the following precautions:
