Purpose Statement:
At Holt we are committed to cultivating and empowering confident and resilient life-long learners who experience academic, social and emotional success. We will do this by educating the whole child in a safe environment where diversity and individuality are nurtured and honored.

Program Description:
We are inspired by the vision of our namesake, Bertha Holt, the founder of Holt International Adoption Agency. Our school’s program is designed to embody her legacy of care for children from all backgrounds and abilities. Holt is a true community of teachers, students, parents, staff and volunteers working together to help students achieve academically.

School Highlights:

  • Our beautiful, well-stocked library is staffed and available to students and families before and after school, as well as during weekly class times
  • Students are carefully taught common school expectations and procedures in our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program (PBIS)
  • Holt has a large number of community and family volunteers. Our volunteers staff our library, read regularly with students, and provide enrichment activities
  • Students engage in six schoolwide enrichment days per year. Each year we vary the activities in response to student and family input. This year we brought in the Science Factory to provide hands-on science activities
  • Our teaching staff is committed to integrating technology into our classroom instruction
  • Holt offers exciting enrichment opportunities for all students including participation in the Oregon Battle of the Books program
  • After-school childcare is available on-site through the City of Eugene’s KidCity program

School Improvement Goals:

  • The school’s principal and staff will work together to create a safe, respectful, culturally inclusive environment with consistent school rules and expectations
  • Instructional teams will use a variety of data to assess strengths and weaknesses of the curriculum and instructional strategies and make necessary changes
  • The school’s key documents will be annually reviewed for revision and disseminated to all families in the school and translated as needed
  • School leadership will facilitate an annual needs assessment based on student achievement and the key areas of effectiveness
  • All instructional staff at the school will be engaged in aligning instruction and local assessments to state standards
