Hurray, Hurray, Kindergarten is Full Day!

Parents will learn about the Kindergarten day, our wonderful school, and the curriculum. Students will meet their teacher, participate in a brief activity and tour the school. We look forward to seeing all new Kindergarten students on August 31 at 10:00am in the APR.
Holman Summer Reading Challenge 2016!
Are you up to the Holman Reading Challenge?
Read any 5 books that are good for your interests and reading ability!
Write the title and author of your five books on the chart provided. Or make your own online account for a summer reading log on the Ocean County Library website-- see directions on the link below.
After you write down your 5 books or type them into your Ocean County Library account, go to ANY Ocean County Library Branch and tell the librarian in the Children’s Department! The librarian will give you a certificate to show that you read your 5 books! And you will have a chance to win fabulous prizes from the Ocean County Library! In September, bring your certificate from the Ocean County Library to your new teacher.
When you bring in your certificate of completion, you will receive a coupon for a special treat! You will also be entered into a special raffle to win a Holman Summer Reading Prize Basket! (Thanks to HOPE for providing these prizes!) And you will get to play Kickball with Mr. Karas!

Mrs. Macaluso and Mrs. Shilan held a book drive once again this year with the Holman community. They collected gently used and new books and worked with students to 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 $1,270! 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 truly making a difference!
