New Procedures for Visiting Schools

We are pleased to share with you some updates to our procedures for visiting our schools. These changes were developed in collaboration with our district security staff, receptionists and the Jackson Township Police Department and represent our continued effort to evaluate our security needs and make changes when necessary.
Why are we making these modifications?

It is important for our staff to be able to focus on their primary mission – to educate our students and to keep them safe. We want to limit situations that draw focus away from those goals so we can continue to provide a safe and secure environment.

From the Principal

November 25, 2015

Dear Holman Families:

As a reminder, Holman School will be closed on Thursday, November 26th, 2015 and Friday, November 27th, 2015.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving Recess with friends and family!

It is hard to believe but we have already finished one quarter of our school year.  As we enter a new marking period, if you haven't done so already, please be sure to log into your Portal account to make sure that you are ready to access your child’s first marking period report card.  Report cards were released to the Portal on November 24th.   Please keep in mind that Kindergarten students do not receive report card marks for the first marking period.  We encourage you to discuss your child’s progress with them.

During the past few mornings, the temperatures have been rather cold and, on a few occasions, we have had frost.  Students should come to Holman School wearing clothing that keeps them warm during the school day.  As the temperatures get lower, please make sure that your child is also wearing the appropriate outerwear, such as a jacket, gloves, hat, etc.  Weather permitting, teachers try to take students outside for recess on a daily basis.

“Understanding Assessments and Grading’’ District Information Page

 The district has posted a new “Understanding Assessments and Grading’’ resource page to provide information about the PARCC and other assessments – including the full testing calendar for each school, sample tests, videos and a host of valuable resources for our parents and students.  This page also includes our recent and upcoming grading and report card changes. I encourage you to take some time to view these important resources.

 FYI:  The PARCC Testing and other testing dates are also available on the calendars on our district and school websites.
