Mrs. James

Welcome to Hollydale!

Our goal is to “Create a culture of rigor, achievement, and celebration in reading, writing, and math.”

We are fortunate to be a part of the Right Brain Initiative again this year, which brings artists in residence to each and every classroom. Our staff will be looking at more ways to integrate art into their instruction to bring learning to life for all kids. Our teachers will be working closely in grade level teams and using student data to plan instruction around the national Common Core Standards. This will allow students the chance to grow in their abilities at an individualized level. As part of that effort, we expect families to support their students by staying in communication with the school and by having all students at school on time and ready to learn each day.

We continue to strive to provide a safe, positive, and rigorous learning environment for all students. We will teach students the expected behaviors across the school environment and give lots of positive reinforcement for students that are being Safe, Respectful and Responsible. This year we will be looking at more ways to involve families and the community at Hollydale. We welcome you into our school and classrooms! If you have a question, concern, or just want to become more involved in our school, please call me at 503-661-6226.

Working together we can make a difference in the lives of our children.
