Veterans’ Assembly

On Friday, November 10th the 5th grade students at Holden Elementary honored veterans at an assembly in the afternoon.  We would like to thank all the families and veterans that attended the assembly.  Below are three videos that were submitted by our families that we were unable to watch during the assembly.  Please take time to listen to their stories.  

Harold McKinney – Grandfather of Sarah, Aaron, and Kira McKinney

Chester Kaschak – Grandfather of Tommy Kaschak

Bob Mather – Grandfather of Tommy Kaschak

 

 

Inquiry in Action

The teachers have been involved in two years of professional development. Throughout the school year I plan on posting videos that show students participating in inquiry based lessons.

 

Change in Dismissal

Dear Holden Parents,

Dismissal is a very crazy time of the day. We are trying to make sure that students are getting messages that may impact how they are getting home. Most of our messages come into the office around 3:00 and we begin dismissing students at 3:10. If we miss a call and it is on voicemail we may not get the message until after students leave. We are asking for your help to insure that all students arrive home safely. If there is any change to your child’s dismissal procedure please call our office before 2:00 or send a note to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for your help.
