Holland Middle School

Distance Learning Message #8

Message From Rich and Tim

We want to thank everyone for their patience, kind words, and support throughout our student pick-up and drop-off times this week. It was a pretty smooth process! Albeit through car windows, our staff cherished the opportunity to interact with many students and parents for that short period of time. We truly do miss everyone!

We will be in the building Wednesday 6/10, Thursday 6/11, and Friday 6/12 from 8:00AM - 3:00PM. During those time frames we will leave a table outside for anyone to drop off any school materials (textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms, etc.). If your child still has not picked up their locker contents please park your car and come to the main office. No-one will be allowed inside the building, but we will have staff available to locate student personal belongings.

End of Year Awards

On June 16th we will sending out video links in the same fashion that HMS Weekly is formatted. There will be separate links for 7th and 8th grades. Contained in the videos will be our annual Academic Team Award winners and further well wishes from staff & faculty members. Each team has picked one boy and one girl to honor for their leadership, character, and overall performance. Additionally, in 8th grade we will recognize our Annual Eileen Cohen Math Award winner, which is a scholarship.

Friday = Day of Wellness.

In order to help promote student wellness, the district is providing optional activities for all grade levels that can be completed individually or with families on Fridays. The activities address the physical health, mental health, and social connectedness of our students. Due to the current events in our society, it is important that we encourage the appreciation of diversity in order to fully respect each other and make our community a better and safer place; thus, this week’s activities focus on learning about worldwide cultures through music, games, cooking, and literature.
