Hello Holland Elementary Parents,


Hopefully all of you fared well with the snowstorm...and having your family trapped inside the house for two days. These days can be a wonderful respite from the rush of normal family activities, so I hope that the down time was enjoyable.

The message below provides information about many upcoming events at school and in the district. Kindly take a moment to review the items and I thank you, in advance, for supporting your child, the school, and the PTO with these events.

HES Proud!

On Thursday evening, the CR Board of School Directors held it's monthly meeting, and it was an opportunity for HES students to shine!

First, Mrs. Lutz lead the fifth and sixth grade Uptempo group in singing the National Anthem and "Each of Us Has a Light." In both, the children had beautiful harmonies, nailed their parts, and wowed everyone. Awesome!

Then, sixth grader, Matthew Jarek, was recognized for having his artwork selected to represent Holland Elementary in the Chancellor Center "Rotating Collection" in the board room this school year. Alongside his proud mom and proud art teacher, Mrs. AuBuchon, Matthew represented our school so well. Way to go, Matt!
