Mrs. Lock's Science Class

Mrs. Lock’s science students are working on their animal unit, comparing and contrasting animal adaptations. As part of their work, they completed dissections of the crayfish and frog.

2013-2014 District Calendar

The 2013-2014 District Calendar was approved by the CB School Board at the January 22 School Board Meeting. One important change to the calendar is that the first day of school is no longer just for 7th grade students. Next year, September 3rd will be the first day of school for all students at Holicong (7th, 8th and 9th). As a result, the staff at Holicong has been busy preparing for events to help 7th graders acclimate themselves to the middle school before school even starts. Please take a look at the events that we have planned.
