Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holly Township District Curriculum
Holly Area Schools includes the Social Studies curriculum into each student’s life from their first year at school. Part of this curriculum includes the study of Geography. Students begin by becoming familiar with their own community and state. After this they discover information about other states in the United States, plus countries that border the U.S. Soon, they find out about other countries, including their topography and the influence that it had in settlements and trade. By becoming familiar with all this students become aware of the world around them and the variety of cultures surrounding them.
The English curriculum at Holly Area Schools includes the study of literary classics. To begin with this subject, students learn how to read from classroom books and the students’ own books. They then see how to analyze these books as they look for the characteristics that make a book stand out. When they are in high school, they are then able to take complete works, such as Shakespeare’s plays or sonnets, and discover the figurative language, or examine them from the viewpoint that the author wanted to write to.

Chalk Talk: Teaching About Money
Children do not have a natural-born sense about money. They need a little guidance from their parents to learn about it. Parents need to begin teaching them about it when they are young. When shopping, talk with the children the difference about looking and buying. When looking, a child can get an idea of something they may like, then they have a goal to save for. They can earn money by earning stickers for doing jobs without complaining. At the end of the week, they can get a so much for each sticker. Children can also learn how to divide their money by having a place to put money to save, give and spend. By following these hints, parents are helping their children to begin to be responsible money managers.
