Welcome to Holland Elementary School, where our mission "We commit to work as a collaborative team to provide a safe, positive learning environment; to develop motivated and well-behaved students; to promote strong leadership and innovative learning; to set and achieve high academic standards; and encourage families to be committed to this effort as well" – is visible each day throughout our school.

It is important to reflect that Holland Elementary School has consistently maintained high academic standards thanks to the dedication of our faculty to help each student perform to his/her highest academic and personal potential!

Here is a little school history – first, Holland serves students in kindergarten through grade five and houses both the very first classrooms to provide education to Holland/Springfield

students and some of the newest classrooms in the school district!  The school's rich history, combined with state-of-the-art technology, innovative instruction and high expectations make it possible for all students to enjoy their time at school! 

Students delight in sharing stories of events and activities with friends, neighbors and even television personalities like Kristian Brown from 13 ABC! (see photo to the right!)

Holland Hearts are Healthy and Happy
The students at Holland Elementary just completed their annual American heart Association Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.  Once again they were able to raise over $5,000 for the American heart Association.  The top fundraiser was Emma S with $515 and the top class was Mrs. Deisher’s class with $1,353.  Mrs. Deisher’s class will enjoy an extra PE class and a treat for their efforts.  Mrs. Hirzel’s class made it a very tight race so they will also enjoy an extra PE class with Mrs. Brown.

By participating in jump rope activities students are working on the Ohio State Standards for PE.  Fourth and fifth grade students are asked to develop individual jump rope routines and group long rope routines to be shared with their entire grade level and for a few special groups with the entire school.  The gym is always filled with fun music and enthusiastic students at this time of the year. 

As part of this annual event the student’s not only learn how to jump single ropes and long ropes, they also learn how to take good care of their hearts.  The students learn about eating healthy and exercising to maintain a healthy body.  They also learn about helping others who may not have a healthy heart by raising money for a good cause.

As a culminating activity students who raise at least $30 and want to play get to play dodgeball against the teachers.  At this assembly the entire student body watches fifth graders perform their jump routines and watch the dodgeball game.
