Holyoke Early Literacy Initiative (HELI)

Holyoke has a HELI Parent Campaign. 

We are asking Holyoke families to become HELI Parents by:

  1. Knowing that Holyoke has a list of signs that your 0-3rd grade child is "On Track for Literacy". 
  2. Committing to do "ONE THING A DAY" to support your child's literacy, and 
  3. Making sure your child attends school every day if you're in school.

Take the HELI Pledge Today to learn how you can support your child's literacy development at home by doing "One Thing a Day".
