Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year at Holt Elementary School.
Our school has changed over the past few years. We moved back to our school in 2013 after spending 18 months at Lloyd Wood Middle School while our school was repaired and renovated after the devastating tornado in 2011. Our numbers have steadily increased since returning back to our campus. Due to our increase in enrollment we received a new six classroom addition. This is our first year in this addition.
I am in my tenth year as principal at Holt Elementary. I served as assistant principal at Holt Elementary three years prior to becoming principal. I also served as assistant principal at Taylorville Primary School. I have taught physical education for 19 years prior to entering the field of administration.
We take great pride in being a Leader in Me school. We are working to instill the 7 Habits in our students so they will become better leaders in our community. Our ultimate goal is to achieve Lighthouse status which we hope to do next fall.
I truly love working with children everyday. I do believe that all children can learn and succeed.
I am married to Donny Crawford and we have two sons, two wonderful daughter in-laws and 5 precious children.
I would like to encourage all parents to be actively involved in their child's education by having close contact with your child's teacher. We welcome all parents to our school.
