September 24, 2014


Dear Holman Families:


The leaves are turning color, the temperatures are beginning to fall, and the night sky is getting darker more quickly each day.  Fall is here!  We have many things planned at the Holman Elementary School this October.  


As a reminder, school WILL NOT be in session on the following dates:  Thursday, September 25th & Friday, September 26th


Say CHEESE!  Students in grades K, 1, and 2 will have their school pictures taken on Wednesday, October 1, 2014.  Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will have their pictures taken on Thursday, October 2, 2014. 


As stated at Back to School night, during the month of October, Holman School will be promoting character education by celebrating Respect Week, Safe School Week, and Red Ribbon Week. On Monday, October 6, students will listen to the Respect Pledge during morning announcements and sign a pledge in the classroom to be respectfully, responsible, and safe students in the Holman School community.  Students are encouraged to wear a BLUE SHIRT as it is national Blue Shirt Day to stomp out bullying.  On Wednesday, October 8, students will wear Holman School colors (red, black, or grey) to show unity to be respectful to themselves and others.  On Thursday, October 9, all students will receive a book mark containing ways to be a positive friend.  Teachers will be reading and discussing this with students in the classroom.  On Friday, October 10, students will celebrate Walk for Respect…Follow the Golden RuleStudents are encouraged to wear Gold/Yellow on that day.  These initiatives showcase our commitment to providing students with a safe and healthy learning atmosphere. With this in mind, the Holman School is committed to the character development of all our students.  We look forward to the other activities that will be occurring during this month of character building.
