Principal's Message

Dear Holliman Families,

I would like to give a huge thank you to our Holliman PTA Teacher Appreciation committee led by Mrs. Wright, and to all families and members of the school community who truly made our teachers and staff feel special for Teacher Appreciation Week! You certainly out did yourselves this year! I am beyond grateful for your generosity. Our Holliman teachers work hard each day to ensure that each child's individual academic and social emotional needs are met. It made me so happy to see the smiles on their faces each day!

I am equally as grateful for the parents and teachers who participated or showed up in support of our 5th grade basketball game! It was a blast!

Last week I had several families and neighbors reach out to me regarding safety in our parking lot, drop loop and surrounding streets. There have been reports of cars speeding down Deborah and Mullen Roads leading into Holliman. Please be sure to follow all speed limits, traffic signs and no parking areas.

Please know that can make myself available to discuss any questions or concerns you may have within a timely manner. Please continue to reach out via email and/or phone call/text at 401-871-4145.


Mrs. Cabana, Principal

Bus Notifications

In an effort to keep the entire Holliman school community informed regarding situations involving late buses or any other busing issue, Miss Ann sends these updates via email and I send the updates via social media and text.

Everyone is included in these updates as there are some Holliman families who are responsible for providing care for bus students after school.

Volunteer TShirts

This year we'd like to offer our volunteers an opportunity to purchase a field day shirt if they'd like to. This is not required! Our field day theme this year is "A day at the beach" so our shirts will be lifeguard shirts! They will be red with white lettering. The cost is $6.75 per shirt. Please send field day volunteer shirt money to school in an enclosed envelope or bag clearly labeled Field Day Volunteer Shirt $$$ C/O Mrs. Bonneau & Mrs. Burgess. You can also stop at my exit door at dismissal time if you don't want it to get lost in a backpack! There is a space on the volunteer form for you to fill out if you'd like one. Please indicate ASAP if you'd like one I will be placing the order within the next week. Thank you again to Express Embroidery!!
