From the Principal

 

February 27, 2015

 

Dear Holman Families:

  

I like to read books in our school.  I like to read because it’s cool.  I like to read when it is hot.  I like to read books a lot.  I want to thank all of you for coming out to Dr. Seuss Night.  Our Book Fair and Dr. Seuss Night were a huge success.  Thank you to our H.O.P.E. Book Fair coordinators and volunteers for their organization and dedication.  Thank you to Ms. Schadl and the Jackson Education Association (JEA) for sponsoring our Read Across America week and our Dr. Seuss Night.  I also would like to thank the teachers and staff who volunteered their time and energy as readers and actors in the performance. 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 and......it's fun!

 

PARCC

Next week the third grade students will be taking the PARCC test from Monday through Friday.  Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday testing will focus on Literacy (Reading and Writing).  Thursday and Friday testing will focus on Math.  Here are a few reminders and suggestions for these days:

    • Your child needs to arrive to school on time each day.

    • Testing will start PROMPTLY at 9:00am each day.

    • Encourage your children to eat a healthy breakfast and go to bed a little earlier than usual each night.
