The Elementary Physical Education Program (K-5) is aligned with The Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Curriculum Frameworks & National Standards, which de-emphasizes competition, and re-emphasizes skill attainment & self-accomplishment, with every student involved at all times: physically, mentally, & socially. Students will learn the language of movement, so that they may apply basic strategies and skills to a variety of sports and wellness activities.
Hollis students have been working hard down in the library! We continue to share what we have been reading and which we enjoyed the most.
We were all excited to see which books won the Newbery and Caldecott Awards from the American Library Association! We talked about our favorite books of the last year and compared them to the results.
5th grade has been using the interactive whiteboard to study John Smith and the colony at Jamestown. We are learning about the role Pocahontas played in the survival of this first English settlement in America.
4th grade has been using the netbooks to start blogging. We are sharing book recommendations and summaries on Kidblog.

2nd grade has started to use the wireless netbooks. We are learning how to log on to the netbooks and how to work with the keyboard and mousepad.
