Calling All Readers! ! 

We invite you to participate in the Lakewood BlueClaws “Buster’s Book Pals Reading Program!”  Your teacher will give you a Buster’s Book Pals Bookmark to bring home.  Read 5 books and write down their titles on the bookmark.  Then have your Mom or Dad fill out the back of the bookmark and send it to the BlueClaws to redeem for a free child’s ticket to any Lakewood BlueClaws baseball game during the month of May.  Your family can order additional tickets for your Mom & Dad & anyone else who wants to go with you when you send in your bookmark.  The bookmarks should not come back to school—you can mail them directly to the Lakewood BlueClaws to get your tickets!  And you can mail them to the BlueClaws as soon as you read your 5th book-- but the program ends on May 26, 2015.  Happy reading!

Congratulations to the students that earned Snack with the Principal for March!
These students have shown FAIRNESS!

Congratulations to our

Dear Holman Families:

Please note that report cards will be available for parent viewing as of Thursday, April 23rd.  As we begin the final marking period of this school year, please continue to encourage your children to read each evening and complete his/her homework assignments to reinforce the instruction of lessons learned in school.  We have many activities during the last couple months of school.  Please be sure to stay informed by visiting our school website regularly and checking the e-Backpack. 

Classroom placements:  At this time of year, many parents call or write to the school regarding their child’s class placement for next year.  Class placement is a complex process that involves the input of many educational professionals and considers many factors.  The ultimate goal of the placement process is to find the best possible match between what is best for the student and what are the strengths of each teacher.  I realize and appreciate your concern, but I will not honor parent requests for particular teachers.  I do, however, value your input and individual concerns for your child.  As in the past, I will accept one non-request.   I will consider any concern or input that you have to offer, if you provide your concern in writing or via email to me before May 8th.  Concerns written after this date may not be taken into consideration.  This will allow the educational professionals sufficient time to find the most appropriate match for your child.  As always, I appreciate your understanding and support in this matter.
