From The Superintendent – Winter 2019

Welcome to Holt Public Schools! It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write the eleventh of what I hope will be many Ram Quarterly (RQ) welcome letters to you and our exceptional community! For those who are just joining the Holt Public Family, I would like to sincerely welcome you to our district. We are here to serve you and hope that you will soon feel our district pride and our attitude of gratitude!

This is our seventh edition of the nearly exclusively online RQ. We are aware that some of you wish to read a paper copy of our publication. Limited quantities of the RQ can be accessed throughout the district, and you can also access more information on a daily basis by connecting with us via social media on Twitter: @HoltPublicSch, on Instagram: holtpublic or on Facebook: Holt Schools Advantage. You can also access this publication as well as a plethora of more information in the following ways:

For the fourth year in a row, I plan to lead a community book study. Three years ago, we read and analyzed the book Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson. Two years ago, we studied the Rules of the Red Rubber Ball by Kevin Carroll. Last year, we read Simon Sinek’s book Together is Better. This year, we are reading The Ball by Todd Whittaker. Whittaker reminds us of the importance of keeping your eye on what matters (the students and community we serve) and to remain true to yourself.

Once again, I am firmly committed to promoting our district by highlighting the extraordinary, inspiring work that takes place daily. I am honored to serve you and embrace the opportunity to celebrate the past and continue to inspire the future of Holt Public Schools. Keep an eye on us as we Innovate, Educate, and Inspire our learning community to achieve on every level! Throughout the school year, I urge you to engage with us on social media and I hope you enjoy reading this edition of the Ram Quarterly! Together IS better!

District Pride, Community Wide!

Dr. David G. Hornak
