Principal's Message

Dear Holliman Families,

On Wednesday, our PTA sponsored a visit from Chris Poulos, BMX super star and motivational speaker. Besides his amazing skills and tricks on his bike, Chris shared some important words of wisdom with our students. The takeaways from his presentation are to always treat each other with kindness, always say I'm sorry, and never give up!

Below are some amazing photos of this event including an awesome video!

I look forward to our upcoming cultural arts events provided by our PTA.


Mrs. Cabana, Principal

Survey Works 2023 is Here!

The Rhode Island Department of Education is currently administering its annual SurveyWorks Family Survey, which is an opportunity for family members to provide feedback about our school community and our children’s opportunities to learn.

The survey results are most useful when all families participate! Our goal is to get to 100% participation this year!

Your views on matters like the safety of your child at school, the way students are taught, the condition of the school, and how connected you feel to this school are important. By taking this short survey, you can help our school leadership and school community to make improvements. Responses are anonymous and cannot be linked to any individual; no one can tie your responses back to you.

You can take the short survey online between January 17 and March 31. To take the survey, visit: bit.ly/ridefamily. Choose your school from the dropdown list.

Below is an invitation to an in person meeting to learn more about Survey Works. A virtual option will also be offered immediately following the PTA meeting!
