Principal's Corner



Dear Parents,


            On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you and your child to Hollinger’s Island Elementary School for the 2017-2018 school year. Working together as a team, we can make wonderful things happen to ensure academic success for all of our students.


           We will continue to focus on achieving high standards, excellent attendance, and exceptional behavior so that students leave our school prepared for the next educational stage in their life.


           We cannot do this alone. We need your help. A child’s first teacher is their parents. A child’s education does not begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, August through May. Learning takes place every day, everywhere, and in all situations and includes both formal and informal learning. I strongly encourage you to become active participants in your child’s educational process.


            I also encourage all parents to communicate with your child’s teacher on a regular basis. Parents are asked to become parent volunteers, room parents, and become active in the Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO). The PTO sponsors several activities throughout the year in which volunteers are needed.


            The Hollinger’s Island Parent/Student Handbook provides valuable information that you will find useful about our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school.


            I look forward to meeting and working with each of you. We, the faculty, staff, and administration are committed to your student’s success and are anticipating a very positive and successful year. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me at 251-221-1376 or email me at On behalf of the amazing Hollinger’s Island faculty and staff, I would like to wish all of you a wonderful school year.
