Principal's Vision

Greetings Husky Families -

 

I would like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. I hope you have had a restful and rejuvenating summer and are recharged for the new school year.

 

Hollencrest has a tradition of academic excellence that is attributable to an outstanding staff, dedicated and caring parents, and the high quality of our student body. It is my primary goal to continue this level of excellence by ensuring our students are exposed to an engaging and rigorous curriculum, make certain our teachers utilize research-based best strategies, and analyze academic data to set goals for growth and improvement.

 

I am also very excited about this upcoming year as we begin our implementation of two new signature programs at Hollencrest: Design/Engineering/Robotics Elective, as well as our 8th grade AVID pathway.  Both of these new programs will provide opportunities for our students to experience new and engaging curriculum to better prepare them for high school and beyond.

 

In addition, we will also continue our implementation of “Capturing Kids Hearts” and Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) to create a more positive and inviting environment for our students. We are an anti-bullying campus and we believe in open communication between students, staff, and parents in order to prevent bullying and foster positive relationships.

 

I am including several ways that family members of our school community can work together with Hollencrest staff to best support our students:

  • Make sure your child receives eight hours sleep each night.

  • Send your child to school every day on time.

  • Establish a routine for studying. Give your child a quiet corner to read and regular time to do homework.

  • Keep in touch with your child’s teacher via School Loop, agenda, email, or telephone.

  • Attend school-wide events, classroom events, and conferences.

  • Celebrate your child’s success (giving verbal praise), no matter how small it may seem. This will keep your child enthusiastic about learning and proud of his/her work.

In closing, I look forward to an exciting year and working closely with each of you to best support all of our students. Together, we can help all our students achieve their maximum potential.


Thank you again for choosing Hollencrest Middle School.


Thank you,

Devon Rose
