Holman Highlights

Do you have any new or gently used books?

If so, please consider donating them to Mrs. Shilan’s and Mrs. Macaluso’s class. We will be hosting a book drive which will provide students the opportunity to purchase a “new” book just in time for summer. Books will be sold for just $.50! All proceeds will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Leftover books will be donated to teachers’ classroom libraries, and to the PickUp Please, Vietnam Veterans of America charity. Book donations can be brought in at anytime and placed in the book collection boxes in the front lobby.

Congratulations to Holman fourth grade student Mackenzie Kopf! 

Mackenzie was the 1
st Place Winner in the 2014 My County Poster Contest.   Students from elementary schools in all of Ocean County submitted posters that displayed some of the wonderful features of their region.  Mackenzie will be honored at a ceremony in Toms River.  Way to go, Mackenzie!

Congratulations to all!

The Holman Elementary School held its annual Talent Show for staff and students in the Liberty High School gymnasium.  Acts included dancing, singing, playing instruments, and juggling to various songs from the 80's.  Pictured above was one of the final acts of the night as the Holman staff did an incredible dance routine in the dark to Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation.

From the Principal

 April 11, 2014 


Dear Holman Families:


Don't forget that the Holman Elementary School will be closed during the week of April 14th to April 18th.  School will resume on Monday, April 21st.  It looks like a mixed bag of weather in the 50s and 60s.  Enjoy your time with family and friends.  Have a safe and restful Spring Break.


Attention all parents of Kindergarten AM students! AM Kindergarten students experienced full days of school this week.  I saw some tired little faces by the end of the week.  Thank goodness they have a full week to recover!  This makes up five out of the nine AM sessions cancelled due to the delayed openings we have had to date.  The sixth day will be made up on Kindergarten Field Day.  The other three days will be determined at a later date.  Information will be forthcoming.


Morning arrival: Parents who drive students to school in the morning can drop off in the car-line between 8:35AM and 8:45AM in the south parking lot. The side door opens at 8:35 AM and closes promptly at 8:45 AM. Please know any students arriving after 8:45 AM must enter through the front/main entrance with a parent/guardian and must be signed in at the Reception Desk. This protocol is for the safety and supervision of our students.  Thank you for your continued cooperation.

Report Cards: The third marking period is coming to an end, and the fourth marking period will begin soon.  Report cards will be available for parent viewing as of Monday, April 28th.  If you have problems with the Parent Portal, please contact the main office.


The SOAR/Reach for Success Sessions have finished for the year.  They will resume again next year.
