(A raffle for books will take place and winners will be selected at random from all students who have completed the reading week challenge.)

As stated in each newsletter, please know that I am 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. I appreciate and value this two way communication.

Holliman School Safety Forum for Families

70 Deborah Road

Warwick, RI

Warwick Public Schools Safety Coordinator, Daniel Maggicomo will be facilitating a school safety forum for all Holliman families! There will be a presentation follow by Q&A.

We will meet in the Holliman All Purpose Room!

Bus Notifications

There are challenges that continue to arise regarding the status of some of our buses. Each day, Miss Ann and I try to send the bus updates out to all families as soon as we receive them. There are often updates that are made throughout the morning while we are attending to other issues.

Bus notifications that are sent out via email will be sent to families of students of that particular bus only.

Bus notifications that are sent out via the texting app will be sent to all families until there is a a way to filter this.

Lost & Found Last Call!

We once again have a plethora of jackets, sweatshirts, lunchboxes, etc. in our lost and found. During lunches this week I will have students check to see if any of the items belong to them. If your child has something missing, please remind them to check the lost and found.

Holliman Lunch Menus

There have been instances when the lunch menu has changed for a particular day. These changes are reflected on the WPS website.

When we receive notification of a change in a lunch menu choice, I will send out a text notification. At times, we may not receive an advance notification but we will do our best to inform families of any changes.

Kindness Tree Good Deeds Collection

Keep your eye out for our next good deeds ornaments, they will be coming home the week of 5/15-5/20 and we will be collecting and decorating the week of 5/23-5/27. All good deeds should be handed in on or before 5/27! Start helping your students think about good deeds they've done or things they can do! We recently had Teacher Appreciation week, if your child(ren) helped out that counts! There's also been various Earth Day and Arbor Day cleanups and planting events, those are all good deeds!! They don't have to be huge, just helpful!! Thank you!

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!!

Field Day Volunteer Form

Thank you everyone for all your participation in Feinstein activities throughout the year!
