During School Year

Dear Holman Families:
This past Monday all schools were closed in Jackson due to the inclement weather (hopefully for the last time this academic year). As I was spending time with my family, I looked up at the clock and realized that it was already 1:30 pm in the afternoon. I began to think about how fast time actually goes by, how quickly my children were growing up, and how fast this academic year has been going. Then I realized something else. I realized that time would be even faster this weekend as we have to set our clocks ahead on Sunday, March 9th at 2:00 am for Daylight Savings Time. Losing one whole hour….all the reason to take advantage of the precious time that you have with your family. Enjoy!
We have 2 wonderful reading incentive programs for our students that we want to let you know about:
v HOPE-sponsored “Read Across America” Program—each student can download and print out a map of America that can be found in the Holman e-Backpack. For each 15 minutes that the student reads, he/she colors in a state completing a path all the way across the country. When the students complete their reading trip ACROSS AMERICA, they should bring their map forms in to their classroom teacher. Classroom teachers should collect and turn in all maps to HOPE. The class that turns in the most completed maps (a "completed map" is a map with a consecutive path of states colored in from the East Coast to the West Coast) will win a taco party or a nacho party sponsored by HOPE. All maps need to be turned in by March 31. Have fun!
