Welcome to Holloway Elementary School, where our mission of "Learning today to prepare for tomorrow"- is seen every day throughout our building. Holloway Hornets have high academic standards, as evidenced through past high ratings from the Ohio Department of Education.  We are very proud of the entire Holloway family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception! 


Testimonial for Holloway Parents

Mark and Kristin BrooksHolloway.Love.13

"Our daughter Kelsey is going into the 2nd grade
at Holloway Elementary.  We could not ask for a
better environment for her to grow and learn than
Holloway.  The teachers and support staff are top
notch!  They are caring and respectful of the children
and parents.  I appreciate that Holloway is culturally
diverse and is a great example of what a public school
looks like today in 2013.   Kelsey feels a true part of her
school; she loves her friendsand teachers and continues
to thrive.  We believe she is getting a well-rounded
education, including her love of music and art.  We look
forward to being a part of the future at Holloway and
seeing Kelsey continue to strive to be the best student
she can be. "

 

 

Principal's Weekly Message

#springfieldstrong!

Principal Bill Renwand's Newsletter will return in August

Be Responsible,  Be Respectful, Be Prepared, and Be Safe
Students awoke and prepared for that first day of school.  The busses arrived, the doors opened and another year at Holloway Elementary School has begun.  Approximately 430 students entered the doorways this past week to begin the 2015/2016 school year.  Staff and parent volunteers from HAP (Holloway Association of Parents) greeted and assisted the students to their classrooms for the first day of school. 

An opening day welcoming assembly was held and the principal, Mr. Bill Renwand, spoke with the students on the 4 B’s of a good Holloway education. We all know those famous 3R’s of education…..the Reading, the Writing, and the Arithmetic.  Now we have added the 4B’s that Mr. Renwand spoke to the students and staff about. The 4 B’s he presented were: Be Responsible,  Be Respectful, Be Prepared, and Be Safe!   

The four B’s are part of the new PBIS program at Springfield Local Schools.  Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success.  This is implemented through a series of Teach To expectations for every day to day routines and expectations.  For more information on PBIS check out their website at: https://www.pbis.org/school/swpbis-for-beginners/pbis-faqs.

Of course we first need everyone to report to school each day, on time, and ready to do their best.  With out the students here at school the educational opportunities get lost…lost like socks in the laundry…so please help your student(s) report to school each day, on time, and do their best.
 
The 4 B’s will continue to be important in everyday life both at Holloway Elementary and at home. As the students follow the Holloway motto of: Learning Today to Prepare for Tomorrow.

Students Drop-Off and Pick-Up
The new year has started!  With the return of bus service to many of our Holloway families, it is important for those still choosing to drive students to school to review with students all plans regarding drop-off and pick-up at school.

With the return of busses, the front curb lane will be for busses only!  We will have a modified drop off/pick-up zone and will utilize one lane only.  A map has been shared with parents and is posted above (http://www.springfield-lucas.k12.oh.us/images/stories/Holloway.Lot.15.pdf) to help with your plans.

Please remember that Holloway Elementary School provides education for 420 + students - all who arrive and leave school at the same times each day!  We thank their adult role models for driving slowly and for supporting our efforts to maintain efficient bus traffic patterns.  

This year, Holloway doors will open at 8:10 am for those eating breakfast - others must wait until 8:15 am to enter the building.  We look forward to Holloway new students and their families in the coming days!

Get involved! 
Participate in our Holloway Association of Parents (HAP) meetings, fundraisers, enrichment programs, and special events.  It's a great way to meet other families and to develop friendships and connections on your own outside of play dates!  HAP sponsors many activities during the school year.  Notices are posted on the website, Newsletter and sent home through backpacks.

Communicate! 
Keep in close contact with your child's teacher.  Speak to them at conferences, contact them by phone or email, send in a note or utilize the agenda books.  We like to hear from you and any concerns you may have regarding your child; if you have any ideas about how to enhance your child's teacher's communication with you, please let us know and we will make every effort to put a new communication system in place.

We look forward to another amazing year with our Holloway families. As always we welcome your active participation in your child's education and continued growth. If ever there are any questions don’t hesitate to call the school.
