-Arrive to class on time with pencil/pen, textbook, reading book, folder/notebook, planner and good attitude. Be in your seat and ready to learn. -Teachers have been reminded to enforce the tardy policy to ensure maximum learning! Be mindful of the bells and focus on learning! -With the winter season upon us, please remember that hats and all headgear are expected to remain in your locker. -Don't forget to issue staff "Caught Red Handed" tickets for going above and beyond for students! Stop in the office if you have a staff member you'd like to recognize!
MATS: Holton is now a part of a two day a week bus run with MATS. This is a part of a grant that is to last around 6-9 months. Sustainability will be based upon ridership. Please encourage our students and parents to use the bus system! The greater the use, MATS will increase its bus schedule to Holton.
