Dear Parent and Student,                                                                               August 11, 2015


            Greetings from Thomas W. Holtzman Jr. Elementary School!  We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning and cannot wait until students arrive. The first student school day is Monday, Aug. 24th. The instructional day promptly begins at 8:45 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.


A label with your student’s homeroom and/or bus information is also included in this correspondence. Third grade students should wear the label on the first day(s) of school to ensure that he or she gets on the appropriate bus at the end of the day.  Students are welcome to place the label on a folder or book bag that they take home each night to help remember the correct bus number.


Our Open House Back to School orientations for grades 3-5 will be held on one night this year, Wednesday, August 26th.  The 3rd grade open house will begin at 6:00pm and the 4th and 5th grade open house will begin at 7pm. (This is a change from the District Calendar, which schedules the event on August 18th)


            Many of you will be receiving a mailing from your student’s classroom teacher before the start of school.  Other teachers provide this information directly to students on the first day of school. 


            On behalf of the faculty and staff at Holtzman Elementary, we look forward to a great year. We are all partners in educating our children, and together, we will succeed. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch by calling 717-657-5158, or emailing me at
