Caught Red Handed is a program designed to recognize students going above and beyond at school through behavior, doing the right thing and demonstrating Holton pride. We want our students to have the same opportunity to recognize the adults they work with here. Students, if you observe a staff member going above and beyond and feel they deserve recognition, please come to the office (before school, during passing, lunch or afterschool) and ask a secretary for a Caught Red Handed ticket. Fill it out and turn into the office and we will conduct a drawing for one of our staff members to get some recognition for the work they do. Keep being positive and demonstrating Holton pride!
