|As part of our Social Emotional Learning Goal, Mrs. Waterman and Mrs. Johal read "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. This book demonstrates the power of positive influence and challenges us to "just make a mark and see where it takes you." Vashti believes she cannot draw, and when her teacher gently tells her to try she jabs at a blank sheet of paper and signs her name. The next week, her art teacher has framed the dot, and this action sets Vashti on a journey to explore her artistic potential. Even a simple dot can be seen as art. Holly students were inspired by the book's message and so they designed their own "dot" to make original artwork and we are celebrating making "one's own mark" with a 'Dot Day'. |
Holly is a school community made up of a caring and professional staff, a supportive and active parent group, and a hard-working enthusiastic student body.

Holly takes great pride in the quality of relationships that exist between staff, students and parents.There is a solid base of shared values so everyone can participate in the school community in a meaningful way.
Sincerely, Ms. V. Chapman, Principal
