Campus Goals

Holmsley will be a child centered school focusing on individual strengths and supporting all areas of need. We strive to challenge all students by utilizing higher-level questioning strategies and problem solving. We want to provide a safe, loving environment where all children are successful.

Holmsley’s Vision: At Holmsley Elementary, we do “Whatever It Takes” to develop successful and productive lifelong learners.

 

Curriculum - Elementary

  • CFISD elementary schools are comprised of students in grades K-5. Students who qualify for the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities or for Pre-kindergarten are bused to sites that provide these programs.
  • Core subjects at the elementary level include reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, technology applications, health, physical education, art, music, and theatre arts.
  • Every campus faculty includes the following members: counselor(s), nurse, diagnostician, speech and language clinician, dyslexia specialists, reading specialist(s), and content-area liaisons, as well as specially trained/certified teachers in the following areas: art, music, physical education, technology applications, English as a Second Language, and gifted education.
  • The District's HORIZONS program is for academically-gifted students. In kindergarten, gifted instruction is provided in language arts and mathematics. In grades 1-5, the program addresses the four foundation areas: language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.
  • CFISD's Bilingual and ESL programs provide additional support in English language development for students who have a home language other than English and who have been identified as limited-English-proficient.
  • Elementary schools in Cypress-Fairbanks also feature enrichment activities such as student clubs, tutorial sessions, cultural arts programs, academic competitions, and field trips.
  • Report cards are issued every nine weeks. Academic progress reports are sent to parents after the fourth week of each grading period.
