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. "

Reading instruction in the 21st Century
Many individuals have heard or even use electronic devices for reading. From an online newspaper or magazine to a hand held device for reading books. Whether you use a Kindle or E-reader, an iPad, or even your phone, the technology is a unique way to acquire information or transport your library of materials.
At Holloway Elementary School our Title I reading teachers Ms. Naufel, Ms. Myers and Ms. Karpinski are incorporating technology tools with their instruction to the students in our Title I reading program. Title I refers to a Federally Funded program which provides support for reading and math interventions.
Using Apple iPads students, in addition to reading, are using a variety of “Apps” (applications) which are matched to student learning needs. The iPads are building reading skills and allowing the students to learn how to use new technology which is leading to increased student motivation. From letter sounds and formation to creative writing activities students are utilizing the technology to improve their reading. The use of technology allows the instructor to both engage the learner and to progress monitor their growth. Using data to adapt and modify instruction while maximizing today’s technology is a win-win scenario.
Fundamental skills are being presented and married with electronic devices to better prepare our learners for the future.
Pint Size Heroes
Holloway Elementary is once again participating in Pint Size Heroes, an exciting program developed by the American Red Cross. The Pint Size Heroes program is designed to introduce children to the idea of community service through a blood drive. Children can play a role in this service by talking with family members, sharing information, or maybe even working at the blood drive, scheduled for Thursday, October 8, 2015, and/or by recruiting parents and family members to donate blood. Following a short presentation to the students, packets are sent home with the students for families to review and consider participating in this program. For convenience and safety, this drive will only be open to those who have scheduled appointments. If interested please return the donor response card available at Holloway Elementary to Holloway or register on-line at (www.redcrossblood.org) with “Holloway” as a sponsor code.
The blood drive is scheduled for Thursday, October 8, 2015, from 2:15 – 7:15 pm at Holloway Elementary School’s cafeteria. Please bring your photo ID. This drive is by appointment only. Eligibility requirements to donate blood: Donor must be 17, weigh at least 110 pounds based on height, be in good health, and not have given blood in the last 56 days. Remember to increase your fluids the day of your donation along with eating a good meal an hour or two prior to donation.
Children can and do help the American Red Cross make a difference. Tomorrow’s life-saving blood donations will be made by today’s children who are taught the importance of giving blood.
