Announcements

TEACHER APPRECIATION - Every day during Teacher Appreciation Week - May 2nd-6th - the Holyoke Public Schools will recognize our staff for their commitment to our children with a series of special recognitions. Though we should express gratitude to our educators all year long, this week ensures that they receive the praise they rightly deserve.  We are truly fortunate that our students are educated by men and women who care deeply about their work.    Click here for more information about the special recognitions.

Help us celebrate our teachers! HPS is collecting stories, appreciations and reflections to honor great teachers here in Holyoke. Please take a few minutes and visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S9R53NS to share a story or two about an HPS educator who has made a difference in your life or in the life of one of our students. We will share these stories with the teachers and we will select a few (with your permission) to post online as a way to publicly celebrate the work and impact of educators here in Holyoke.
