To inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve, to care.
At The Hollys, our curriculum and instruction has been carefully chosen to align with our district mission.
We are a Thinking Maps school. Students in K - 5 use the 8 maps to help them visualize their thinking in all content areas.
The teachers at the Hollys also do a lot of work with The Comprehension Toolkit by Stephanie Harvey and Ann Goudvis. This year we will be integrating technology too! A group of pilot teachers will be using the companion book Connecting Comprehension and Technology by Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis to adapt and extend the Comprehension Toolkit lessons with technology.
