--Beginning today, Holman will again participate in the Student of the Week program. This program recognizes one student per grade level each week who exhibits exemplary traits and integrity. The Students of the Week are selected by their teachers and will be announced during the morning announcements each Monday. After the morning announcements, the selected students will report to the library to have their picture taken and receive their recognition rewards. Congratulations to the following Students of the Week:
6th grade: Jason C
Every class, Jason demonstrates the Huskie value of respect. He always greets others with a hello and a smile, and he thanks teachers when he leaves at the end of the day. Jason is thoughtful, helping to clean up without being asked, and he treats others with kindness. Students like Jason truly make a positive contribution to the classroom.
7th grade: Natalie K
Natalie displays the Huskie value of Responsibility. She comes to school prepared with necessary materials such as homework and projects. She is also punctual and ready to learn. Keep up the excellent work, Natalie.
8th grade: Nate B
Nate has already shown great leadership skills during group assignments. He also does a fantastic job of participating in class discussions and has demonstrated mastery of all concepts so far. It is obvious that he is committed to learning and being successful in the classroom.
