Veterans Day Breakfast

On Friday morning, our 5th graders hosted a breakfast for veterans. We had 11 veterans and their families attend the breakfast. The 5th graders presented our guests with cards and a magnet. They ended the morning by breaking into small groups where the 5th graders were able to ask veterans different questions. It was a great morning. Thank you to veterans and their families that were able to attend.

Canned Food Drive

Holden Student Council will be participating in the canned food drive this year that will help  provide items for Kent Social Services.  Each elementary building will focus on two specific items.  Holden will be collecting Ramen and tuna.   Please send in any donations over the next two weeks.  While we are focusing on these items, we will also take any nonperishable items.  

Outdoor Recess During Winter:

Please make sure you check the weather every morning with your child and have them dress for the weather. It is that time of the year in Ohio that the weather changes drastically from hour to hour. Students will go outside to recess if the temperature is above 20 degrees with the windchill. When there is snow on the ground we ask students to stay on the black top unless they have snow pants or two pairs of pants and snow boots. This is to prevent students from having to sit in wet clothes all day. Please go over these expectations with your child. We will not be calling home for a change of clothes. If you feel it is necessary, you can send a change of clothes to school with your child.

Each week students are selected to be recognized for demonstrating one or more of our Holden expectations.  These students are shared on morning announcements.  Each student is able to sign a brick in the hallway that represents the expectation they demonstrated that week.  The following students were recognized this week and signed a brick in the hallway.
