2. Read any 5 books at your reading level.
3. Enter the books into your summer reading log on the Ocean County Library website.

August 2014


Dear Holman Families,


I hope the summer finds you rested, relaxed, and enjoying all of the wonderful things that summer brings.  As you continue to enjoy the warmer days in August....I would like to welcome all of you to our new 2014-2015 school year at the Lucy N. Holman Elementary School.  The First Day of School for all students will be Wednesday, September 3rd

The ELEMENTARY PORTAL opens on Monday, August 25th.  You may use your Portal Access Information to obtain student schedules.

Transportation:  Bus passes will be available on the portal on Wednesday, August 27th.  Please assist your child in learning their bus number and have them bring their bus pass to school for the first few weeks.  Children in Kindergarten and First Grade should wear their bus pass for the first two weeks of school as well. 


Kindergarten Students:  Parents of incoming Kindergarten students will also be receiving a separate letter with various school information and a color-coded tag with the teacher assignment.  This color-coded tag will help our staff to assist with the arrival and dismissal of our precious newcomers.
