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 Students Achieve High Honors
Holland Elementary 4th and 5th graders are showing that hard work and focus really do paid off in the way of academic achievement!  On behalf of our entire faculty and staff, I am honored and excited to announce the names of those students who earned all A’s during the Second Trimester, achieving Principal’s List!  All interested in viewing the complete list are invited to contact the main office. GREAT JOB!  

Holland Elementary – Student Spotlight:  Kendall A
To her classmates and teachers, Kendall A is no different than the typical 4th grader.  Her favorite color is blue, and her favorite food is macaroni and cheese.  She listens to Ariana Grande and likes the song “Perfect” – the duet by Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé.  But her close friends and family know that the talent that lies beneath the surface!  

Kendall started dancing at three years old.  She attends Company C Dance Studio in Toledo, Ohio.  She started out taking classes and was asked to audition for their “Company” dance team.  Ultimately, she made company and has been traveling and competing around the U.S for the past four years. She’s won multiple scholarships for auditioning dance combos, she has won mini elite contestant past three years and placed 4th (out of 250 kids) in West Coast Dance Explosion Nationals in Las Vegas. Her goal this year is to WIN Mini Elite Dancer at Nationals that will be held in Orlando this summer. 

She dances all styles, jazz, jazz funk, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, ballet, tap and ballroom.  While at the beginning of her dancing career Kendall favored jazz, she now prefers ballroom dancing, particularly the waltz.  Kendall competes in group dances, as well as solos and enjoys dancing with her team.  For the past two years she has had two solos in addition to trios and duos.  At her most recent two competitions, Cleveland West Coast Dance Explosion and Chicago JUMP Dance Convention, Kendall placed 1st for her contemporary solo, “Stand by Me,” and her trio also took FIRST place, respectively. 

Kendall is represented by Bloc Talent Agency, LA and has been asked to audition for several shows including the Kids Choice Awards and Lip Sync Battle Shorties.  In addition, her talent has expanded to include various modeling jobs, such as (locally) for Kids Klothesline and has a billboard for Dr. Frankel Family Dentistry.  She plans on spending the summer in LA so that she can audition for more opportunities to dance, model, and possibly expand her resume to include acting!  In addition, in the future, Kendall wants to move to LA and become a dancer – possibly a backup dancer for her favorite singer, Ariana Grande! 

Whatever her future holds, there is no doubt that Kendall will shine, and one thing is certain - the staff and students of Holland Elementary will be cheering her on along the way!  Good luck, Kendall!
