January 9


Welcome to the New Year! I am so excited to begin this New Year with you and your child. We have so many great activities planned for the 2020 school year. Our students participated in many activities last year to highlight their academic and behavior achievement. We are very proud of the success they have had so far and we can't wait to see how well they will perform for the remainder of the school year. Our teachers are working hard with your child ensuring that they are prepared for both district and state assessments. We are also very thankful for the support that you have given to us and to your child. The partnership between school and home is essential to student achievement and success. Please continue to support your child by reading with them daily, completing homework assignments and talking to your child about the importance of doing their best while at school. Holmquist is a great place to be and we are happy to serve you and your child. Happy New Year and talk to your child about Habit 1 - Be Proactive - see below
