Welcome to Holman Middle School. At Holman, being a part of a strong community is a foundation of or school. Building from this idea, our theme this year is Huskies Connected. Beginning the school year virtually for the first nine weeks contributes to the importance of connecting as a community. Although I will miss seeing our Huskies each day in the hallway, classroom, cafeteria, and bus ramp, I know we are prepared as a connected community to make this school year a success!
Holman Middle School has established a strong reputation for academic excellence and student engagement. Although we are in unchartered territory with online learning, our staff has been working hard to build authentic and engaging lessons. In the classroom, students will continue to connect and learn through deeper learning and teachers will challenge them to grow academically.
Holman Middle School will continue to make every effort to foster a positive middle school experience and celebrate student success. Our staff will encourage students to connect by participating in clubs, extra-curricular activities, and (after the first nine weeks) athletics. Even with a virtual start, we will celebrate the successes of our students who exhibit our PBIS core values of commitment, integrity, respect and responsibility. Students will be recognized in a variety ways including students of the week, “PAWsitively awesome” emails, and a Huskie Values Quarterly Program.
Middle school is an opportunity for students to learn and grow as young adults. Through our Holman Committee for Inclusion and our No Place for Hate program, with the support of a caring staff, we will model respect for others and teach kindness and acceptance. The importance of the social and emotional development of our Huskies will be valued this school year through advisory lessons and our faculty and staff reaching out in a variety of ways to connect with our students and families.
I look forward to the 2020-2021 school year, and most of all, being a part of a community of students, teachers, staff and families connecting in a positive and enriching environment, despite current global challenges.
For any questions, please feel free to call or email. Thank you for helping Holman Middle School remain connected.
