There will be a Secondary Redesign Team Meeting for Parents and Community Members on Thursday, February 11, 2016 from 6:00-7:30 PM at Holyoke High School’s Cafeteria. View flyer.

The Secondary Redesign Team consists of a group of teachers, statewide secondary school leaders, higher education officials and workforce development leaders who have been meeting since October to craft a series of recommendations for the secondary experience in Holyoke.  They have visited schools across the state, facilitated focus groups with students, studied the best practices in high school design and reviewed multiple data points.  It has been their intent to examine how to establish pathways that individualize the learning experience for students as they move from middle school through high school and ultimately to college and/or career.  We are confident that their guidance will result in improved outcomes for students during their high school career and ensure that students leave our schools with the preparation to thrive beyond the Holyoke Public Schools.  We look forward to sharing these recommendations at this meeting.

Save the Date! Dodge for the Blue Knight - Wednesday, March 16th at 5:00 PM in Holyoke High School's large gym.
The Sport Management II class will be hosting a dodgeball tournament called "Dodge for The Blue Knight". In the class students learn how to apply their theoretical knowledge gained from the first level course to actively plan and promote a sporting event. Not only are students able to experience a career in event planning, but they also take part in helping their community, which is one of the core values promoted at Holyoke High School.

This year the students are raising money in memory for Erick Matos. Erick passed away last year after a valiant fight against cancer. We will be donating all proceeds from our event to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital to help further the research of brain tumors. This organization not only does research, but also provides care for children diagnosed with cancer. "Dodge for The Blue Knight" will be held on Wednesday, March 16th at 5:00 PM in Holyoke High School's large gym. There will be a $2 admission charge. For more information you can visit our website http://www.hhssptmgmt.weebly.com .
If you would like to make a donation visit our Go Fund Me account http://www.gofundme.com/blueknight  or you can send a check to Holyoke High School and mail it to: HHS C/O Mrs. Reardon 500 Beech St. Holyoke, MA 01040.
