Principal's Message

CONGRATULATIONS AND GOODBYE TO OUR SENIOR HOLLY HORNETS! All of the students looked great and it was a wonderful way to celebrate the end of their learning journey at elementary school and the beginning of a new adventure at secondary school. A BIG thank you to Tracey Burt and all the parents who helped in organizing the Grade 7 Dance. The children had an amazing time.

Return to School in September

The first day of school for 2014-15 is Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014. Classes will be in session from 8:50 - 12:00 noon. Returning students will go back to their 2013/14 classrooms and will be using the same enter/exit doors.

However, there are a couple of exceptions. Mrs. Brind's 2013/14 class (our new Grade 2's) will report to and be dismissed from Mrs. Moir's classroom (Room 114). We ask that all our new Grade 1's for 2014/15 report to the gym via the outside doors to meet Mrs. Stevens and Mrs. Wood. These students will be dismissed from the gym at noon and are asked to return to the gym on Wednesday, September 3rd.  All students in Grade 1-7 who are new to the school are asked to report to the office at the 8:50 bell, and they will spend the day with their grade peers. Classes for 2014-15 will not be set until later in the week when enrolment is finalized and teachers have had the opportunity to have input into the classes. Dismissal will be as usual for Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.

Our new Kindergarten students for 2014-15 will attend an Open House with their designated teacher and will follow a gradual entry schedule as outlined in a letter sent home to parents.

The office will be open on Tuesday, August 26th and Wednesday, August 27th 9:00 to 12:00 noon if you need to be in touch. At that time we will also be able to process new registrations for families who have moved into our community.

Grade 7 Band - Grade 7 Band continues for the new school year. This is a mandatory course for all Grade 7 students, with instruction provided during the school day. Students are required to provide their own instrument. If parents wish to rent instruments from Tapestry, they will be hosting a rental evening at Holly on Wednesday, September 10th at 7:00 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. If you have any questions regarding band, please contact our Vice-Principal Mr. Weber at taweber@deltasd.bc.ca
