Principal's Message

  • Welcome


    Greetings Linwood Holton Elementary Family,

    I am excited to welcome you the start of the 2018-2019 school year! The theme this year is "Holton has H.E.A.R.T". Our students are hard-working, enthusiastic, and are ready to learn! The staff and I are committed to working persistently to foster an environment that is warm, safe, nurturing, and academically rigorous. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children achieve at their highest potential.

    We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and the school. As partners, we are agreeing to do what is in the best interest of our children and work collaboratively throughout the year. We are asking that you support your child’s learning by helping to ensure that he/she:

    - Attends school daily and arrives on time
    - Reads daily to help develop a love for reading
    - Discuss school activities and events daily
    - Informs you if additional support is needed in any area or subject

    Again, welcome to what is sure to be a great year!

    It's a great time to be a lion!

    Nikea Hurt, Ed. D.
