School Newsletter now On-line

by Superintendent Brad Jackson
February 2, 2014

The Winter edition of the District Newsletter will be electronically distributed with a limited number of hard copies available.

Each year we publish two district-wide newsletters.  The first, published in late August, is mailed to every home in Holliston so the entire community to aware that school is reopening and all taxpayers have access to the important information about their school system.  However, in an effort to eliminate the costs of copying and mailing, we have decided to distribute our January newsletter electronically and only to our parent community.  We will, however, make a limited number of paper copies available to members of the Senior community through the Holliston Senior Center.

In this Winter edition, you will get a sense of what is happening in all four of our schools, hear from our system-wide coordinators of Curriculum and Instruction and Special Education, get a sense of important upcoming dates for state-mandated testing and reacquaint yourself with the contents of our current five-year Strategic Plan.  We hope you find the newsletter informative.  If you have suggestions for additional areas that we should report on, please contact us using the Directory Information in the newsletter.
