Testimonial for Holloway Parents Mark and Kristin Brooks
"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. "

Guest Readers at Holloway
Throughout the school year in our primary grade classrooms we host many special guest readers. These are parents, grandparents, community leaders and even principals that stop in for a surprise visit to read and discuss a storybook with the students.
Recently, Mr. Renwand, principal at Holloway, popped into Mrs. Walter’s first grade classroom as a surprise guest reader. With the holidays approaching the book he selected was “The Gingerbread Kid Goes to School” by Joan Holub. The students listened to the story of how the principal bakes a gingerbread kid and when he puts on eyes, a nose, and a mouth it comes to life and runs away. Can the staff and students catch him? You will have to read this funny story and find out! The students ended the lesson with the catching and eating their own gingerbread cookie!
The Holloway staff wishes you happy holidays and says take time over the break to read as a family. Reading together is a great way to share the joy of an adventure and improve one’s skill of learning to be a reader.
Team up to Stop Bullying
To help kick off our Olweus anti-bullying meetings, the first graders at Holloway Elementary had a visit from a few soccer coaches from U.K. International Soccer Camps.
Coach Ben Chandler (England), Coach Eddie Houston (Scotland), and Coach Alister Newby (England) talked with the first graders about how important it is to respect each other by showing good sportsmanship and also how to be a team player.
Cooperation and respect are two key components of Springfield’s character traits and our anti-bullying program and they mirrored several parts of the coaches’ presentation. Coach Ben expressed also how important it is to work hard and help one another out no matter what sport or activity you play.
The students were excited to not only learn about ways to show good sportsmanship but they were also able to see these coaches show off a few of their soccer skills and cool tricks!
