Character Development Program
Cooperation Respect Responsibility Sportsmanship
How Our Program Began
During the 07/08 school year, a few HES staff members got together with Mr. Sanko and decided that we should take our Olweus Bully Prevention Program one step further, and combine bully prevention with character education. We felt that combining these programs would offer our students a more balanced and positive life lesson. We then formed what is now known as our "Character Development Committee". This committee consists of several classroom teachers, our guidance counselor, our IST teacher, support staff members...and, of course, Mr. Sanko.
We visited another elementary school...outside of the CR district.....but who had previously begun a similar program and has had continued success. From this visit, we brought back many great ideas and began putting together a program that would most suit the needs of Holland Elementary School.
After several meetings and hours of discussion, our committee agreed to introduce the HOLLAND HAWKS-CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM to our students and school community.... at the start of the 08/09 school year.

Proudly, we are the first CR Elementary School in the district to implement such a program!
