Dear Holman Families:


Congratulations to H.O.P.E. for sponsoring a successful Fall Harvest Festival on Wednesday, October 29th! The all-purpose room was packed with excited students and parents painting festive pumpkins.  Students were playing various fall-themed games.  Colorful pumpkins, created by the talented Holman staff, were auctioned off to support other school-sponsored events.  It was so nice seeing everyone at this fun family night.


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 onWednesday, November 12th, 2014.  We look forward to seeing you there!


SOAR/Reach For Success   Students attending the programs are to enter the school through the main school doors. Students need to arrive promptly at 7:45 a.m., as late arrivals cause disruption and compromise the validity of the program.  Session I dates are as follows: Oct. 27, 28, 29 & Nov. 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 &  Dec. 1, 2, 3                                                             

Let's Stay Healthy! Protect Yourself From Enterovirus D68 and Other Illnesses

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) infections have recently been documented across the United States. Many state health departments have reported increases this year in cases of severe respiratory illness in children; EV-D68 appears to be the predominant type of enterovirus this year and may be contributing to the increases in severe respiratory illnesses. Mild symptoms may include fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, and body and muscle aches. Severe symptoms may include wheezing and difficulty breathing. Anyone with respiratory illness should contact their doctor if they are having difficulty breathing or if their symptoms are getting worse.


There are simple ways to limit exposure to D68, the flu and other viruses:

  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Talk to Your Child: You can use a graphic from the CDC to help you discuss these personal hygiene measures with your child.
