 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!)

The Core Values of Holland Elementary  - the school year has begun.
Students awoke and prepared for that first day of school. The buses arrived, the doors opened and another year at Holland Elementary School has begun. Approximately 500 students entered the doorways to begin the 2018-2019 school year.

 Staff greeted and assisted the students to their classrooms for the first day of school.  Opening day grade-level meetings were held and principal, Mrs. Steinmiller, spoke with the students on the expectations and core values for the students at Holland Elementary: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, and Be Prepared at all times (in the hallways, in the classrooms, during lunch, during recess, and on the bus).

Each and everyone needs to “Be Prepared” by reporting to school each day, on time, and ready to do their best. Without the students here at school the educational opportunities get lost…lost like socks in the laundry…so students need to report to school each day, on time, and do their best.

Be Responsible – Be responsible for your schoolwork, your words, and your actions. We all have a job to do and the students are to be the best student they can be; show that responsibility by completing work and turning it in on time. Students can positively impact the culture of our school by being responsible for their behavior in the classroom, lunchroom, playground, hallways and restrooms. Being responsible for ones actions and accepting the consequences is the expectation for Holland Elementary School students.

Respect – Be respectful of one another, both the individual and their property. Respect is something all of us have to give and something all of us can earn. Respect is like what we show our American Flag and country when we stand each morning and say the Pledge of Allegiance. It is also when we use our PLEASE and THANK YOU’S, throw our trash in the trash can, share a kind word with one another. Finally, being respectful is helping to keep Holland a clean, welcoming, and friendly place to learn.

The Core Values, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Prepared, and Be Safe, will continue to be a part of the conversations at Holland Elementary. Reinforcing these Core Values at school and at home will help enhance the positive school culture at Holland Elementary!
