Welcome to Holland Heights


pic of kevinAt Holland Heights, our behavior expectations are described in the matrix P-O-W-E-R.  Our staff has been teaching what POWER stands for so that every student can memorize, recite, and demonstrate positive behavior. 

Here’s what POWER stands for:

P-Pride | We care about self, others, work

O-Own Your Actions | We are responsible and honest

W- Wise Choices | We think before acting

E- Engaged | We are focused and involved in learning

R-Respect | Be Nice

We believe it is important for each parent to be aware of these expectations so you can support our efforts at home.

-Kevin Derr
