Holland Middle School

Success for every student, every day

Welcome to
Holland Middle School
 Please join HMS students and sign up for our

Walk a mile in my shoes.

See what I see--

Hear what I hear--

Then maybe you’ll understand why I do what I do.

We are excited to introduce a school-wide reading experience that will foster and promote a community of readers at HMS while also celebrating our diversity.  The goal is to encourage empathy, perspective-taking, and acceptance by prompting Hawks to read books, both fiction and nonfiction, about people who are different from themselves. By immersing ourselves in the stories of others, we can better understand the paths they choose to follow and experience what it means to “WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES.” That is our theme. Click on the link for more detail.

Walk a Mile is an opportunity to build communities of readers at HMS: in classrooms, through clubs and organizations, on athletic teams, with friends, family members, teachers, and coworkers. Each team’s goal is to read 5,280 minutes, the same number of feet in a mile, during the month of March. 
Between March 8th and March 13th, our students will make teams of no more than 15 readers. Smaller teams are welcome, too! Team captains will register their team on  our Google Site,  pick up a swag bag of goodies to get the team started, and encourage their teammates to come to the LMC (Library Media Center) to check out books. 
If you need help finding reading material you can click on the NewsEla link. Remember your initials followed by your student number is your username.
Lets celebrate our diversity!!!
