G.A.M.E.S. - Goals and Motivation = Success

The all new Holland Intermediate is bringing in the reconfiguration with the theme of G.A.M.E.S. - Goals and Motivation = Success!

Holland Intermediate’s  4th and 5th Grade Teams have embraced the theme by creating their own team names. The office staff is turning back the clock to an “oldie but goodie” as Team Tetris. Our specials teachers have adopted the name Team Candy Crush. We hope that students embrace the friendly competition throughout the year.

There are many new things to learn about this year. For instance:

  • the school day begins at 7:30 and dismisses at 2:15.
  • the lunch menu will be changing and students have the option of pizza every day of the week!
  • Recess is back, but the district is excited to adopt a curriculum called Playworks. Students will have brand new ways to play their favorite recess games and activities.
  • finally, the students will have an entire 90-minutes a day dedicated to learning Science and Social Studies.

Many are now in their “new” building, with new teachers, new staff, and lots of unfamiliar situations. However, after watching this new staff work as diligently as they have getting ready for Jumpstart, I just know it is going to be a fantastic year at Holland Intermediate!
