Fifth Grade Families,

I am pleased to announce that we will be celebrating our 5th grade Holland Hawks during an in-person promotion ceremony on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. The ceremony will be set up on the outdoor basketball court. If the weather becomes a concern, we will move the ceremony indoors .

I look forward to the opportunity to celebrate our fifth graders in their final days at Holland!

Adventure Awaits

Dear Holland Friends and Families,

How is it possible we only have 18 days left of school left this year? It has been a year of growing, learning, and celebrating together.

We have been beyond blessed to have a staff dedicated to our students including our office staff, teachers, student teachers, interpreters, kitchen staff, custodians, and paraprofessionals.

Please consider signing your kids up for Explore! There are opportunities for all ages and different learning styles.

Holland is YOUR community school. If you need resources or support for you or your family, please don't hesitate to reach out at (417) 523-4100.

Best of luck to all of our 5th grade students moving on to middle school! Have a safe and wonderful summer, and we look forward to seeing our family together again in August.

Dr. Tarrasch

Holland Principal
