Welcome to Holder School!

Hello Holder families; my name is Jason Blade and I'm proud to serve as the Holder School Principal! At Holder School, we believe in giving every child a chance every single day to reach their full academic, social and emotional potential. We believe that parents are important partners in supporting students on their academic journey as they learn to be reflective and engaged learners. Holder School, home of the Hawks, is a beautiful campus in southwest Buena Park. Educational excellence is our goal for each and every student; our exceptional staff works diligently to ensure success for all of our students. 

At Holder School, we focus on teaching the Common Core State Standards. We use the Go Math curricula and Benchmark Advance English Language Arts curricula. Our goal is to provide our students with the necessary skills to become proficient and successful creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and collaborators. 

Holder School's Reopening on Monday, August 9, 2021

Welcome to Holder School!  I'm very excited to announce that Holder School will return to a regular schedule of in-person learning when school resumes on August 9, 2021.  Please know that we will take every precaution to keep your children safe at school following health guidelines in place when we reopen. 

The state recently released the Updated California Department of Public Health guidance for K-12 schools. As a reminder, COVID-19 health requirements are set by state and county health officials, and school districts are required to follow the guidance in order to operate in-person instruction.

This new guidance updates previous versions in a few important ways and makes it possible for all students to return to a full in-person school schedule. These updates include the following:

After the new guidance was announced, the state made additional comments that created confusion about the masking requirements. The District has since clarified with state and county health officials that the indoor masking mandate is the same as last year. 

We will continue to monitor health and safety guidelines from our state and local agencies. If you have any questions or need support, our school office staff will be available from 7:30 - 3:00 on all school days. We hope you and your family stay healthy and safe. HAWKS soar to success!

Holder School's Instructional Program

Our instructional strategies and practices are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Holder staff members provide our students with a high caliber learning experience in a caring and nurturing environment so that students feel valued and respected. We desire that all of our students develop and maintain a love for learning!  We are continuing our focus on Benchmark Advance, including working with students toward mastering academic vocabulary, becoming fluent readers with analytical thinking skills, and learning to communicate through writing.  These are critical to a student’s continued success in their educational journey!  These skills will be stressed through Distance Learning at all grade levels as we continue to equip our students to build for their future success.

Holder School is a community of caring people whose goal is to create a safe and nurturing environment where students feel included, respected and valued. Our dedicated staff is committed to upholding these expectations by being proactive in addressing student needs and concerns. We expect students to display the traits of being Holder H.A.W.K.S. - Honorable, Accountable, Welcoming, Kind, Scholarly.
