School of Excellence designees announced

SchoolOfExcellence_LogoYesterday the National PTA announced the 170 schools that received their School of Excellence designation for 2014-2016.  Holladay Elementary is proud to let you know that we have received this designation!  The School of Excellence Program helps schools evaluate and improve their family-school partnerships.  Our Holladay families contributed to this effort last year by completing two lengthy surveys related to their experiences at our school.  We received wonderful feedback that will help us continue to improve how families and the school work together to provide the best education possible for our children.  The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, but we also made note of areas where families indicated they were dissatisfied.  This information will guide us as we work to improve our channels of communication and engagement.  We value your feedback!

You can read a press release, the National PTA’s final report about the inaugural School of Excellence Program, and Holladay’s application essay for the program at the School of Excellence page via this website, under PTA Initiatives at:
