Dear Holman Families:


Our Fall Harvest Festival is right around the corner.  The celebration begins here at Holman School on Wednesday evening, October 29, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:00pm.  Our H.O.P.E. sponsored event will provide Fall family fun for the whole family!  Please be sure to visit the website for times and details.   I can't wait to see everyone there.


During the week of October 20 - 24, Holman School will be celebrating Safe School Week.  On Monday, students will listen to the Safety Pledge during morning announcements and sign a pledge in the classroom to be safe students in the Holman School community.  On Tuesday, students will review bus safety rules during morning announcements.  Students are invited to wear ORANGE to show unity to keep school safe on Wednesday.  On Thursday, students will review Internet safety rules during morning announcements.  Friday, students will view and discuss student made videos on school safety.  We look forward to the other activities that will be occurring the following week during Red Ribbon Week.
